John Andersen is a painter and a colourist, using colour in a special and skilful way to evoke the imagination. Having lived his life traveling widely through regional and metropolitan Australia, John is now based at Woodgate Beach, near Childers.
His latest exhibition Colour Ways is indicative of his abstract and often impressionistic style, and features a range of mediums, including acrylics and gouache. The subject matter - nature in landscapes - is captured with expressive and intuitive marks that ignite the imagination and let the viewer interpret the work through their own lens.
