About the Artist

The movement of light and colour across landscape and interiors is a constant source of inspiration to John. Composition, form and texture play an important in the construction of his paintings. John feels that creating the illusion of three-dimensional space on two-dimensional surfaces produces the kind of visual magic that enables the spectator to experience a new way of seeing.
