This exhibition traces the journeys of highly renowned Australian artist John Caldwell through the Australian landscape, featuring works from the last 25 years of Caldwell’s career. Caldwell’s experiences, and memories of places he has visited and drawn inspiration from, have left marks in his many works, which have been painted in the studio after sketching in the landscape. In this exhibition his works respond to the landscapes from one side of Australia to the other. While having been painting and exhibiting full time since 1977, Caldwell has been following a more focussed program of creating exhibitions series from specific regions.
