John’s work is ever evolving, as he uses the landscape as a vehicle to express his creativity. His paintings have a strong sense of place, and yet have an abstract quality that allows viewers space for their own interpretation.
John’s work has been sought after since the mid-eighties and he is represented in many private collections throughout Australia and overseas. He exhibits regularly in South Australia, Western Australia, and New South Wales, having had 27 solo shows and many mixed exhibitions. It is an absolute pleasure to share with you such an expressive body of work.
As I travel and absorb the landscapes from various regions. There are many differences that visually inspire, but there are similarities of feelings and excitement, of experience that seem to always end up as love of country… The landscape that we see gives way to my interpretations of line, strokes and layers of oil pigment, which builds up my expression of storytelling on canvas. — John Lacey
