Rarely has a painter anywhere in the world refinedand intensified a unique personal language of symbols to the level reached by Australian painter John Coburn. Within his immediately recognisable and highly individual form of abstract expressionism he has developed a compresed emotional power reminiscent of Mark Rothko. Long acknowledged as a leading painter and an elder statesman in the Australian arts, Queensland-born John Coburn is represented in all Australian State galleries and many overseas collections, including the Vatican Museum. He has also achieved international recognition for his magnificent Sydney Opera House "Curtains of the Sun and Moon" and his "Seven Days of Creation" tapestries hanging in the Kennedy Center, Washington.
A painter who has always been deeply involved in the landscape of his own country, one of the strongest driving forces behind Coburn's art has been the world of nature. The other compelling force in his work is the spiritual world and it is here that he finds the sense of renewal that brings such power and integrity to his work.
This is the first major book to be published on the paintings of John Coburn. Spanning over three and a half decades of his work, superb colour reproductions represent paintings characteristic of each period of his creative life.
