John Wolseley is one of Australia's most noted and distinctive landscape artists. Through his images he conveys both information and feeling about the natural world. Wolseley develops artworks that show a deeply felt, layered, and often visceral association with the land.

Wolseley uses watercolour, collage, frottage and nature printing to find ways of responding to the natural environment.

He works with local pigments, pollens and charcoal to allow nature to partially depict itself. Likewise he incorporates found fragments – pieces of bark, lichen, leaves, feathers and insects – into the fabric of his work. Through this way of working the artist challenges traditional approaches to the depiction of landscape.

This exhibition is generously sponsored by Sir Roderick Carnegie in memory of his late wife, Carmen ~ Lady Carnegie.
