Paintings by John Olsen 1961-2005

Gary Catalano observed that Olsen’s radicalism came from his ability to play ‘havoc with our conventional aesthetic expectations’, that he challenges us to forge beyond our initial response and enter into the ‘vitality’ of his paintings.¹ This is where the artist immerses himself with all other creatures as part of the profound landscape where he seeks to see both the macrocosm and microcosm simultaneously.

¹ Gary Catalano, ‘A not-so-obvious contrast’, The Age, 24 Sept. 1986
