John Adair's first solo exhibition at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery.
Exhibition Dates: 18 September – 12 October 1996
Geographically my work is formed, architecturally my work is built, out of the Bondi Beach landscape; a composite of land, sea, and sky (a simplification of ones immediate landscape). Personal projections and reflections are simply told and reduced into the picture.
These images have been drawn from the presence of the ocean, the desert, human relationships: of one to the other, day and night, internal and external. The visual seeks to yield the viewer into the deeper calling of our lives.
These paintings are about the empty space, that space that is between us, the personal witness that this space has over our commitment to the other (to each other).
