John Olsen

John Olsen - (b. 1928) John Olsen born in 1928, is a well regarded Australian artist. Although he’s widely identified as being an abstract artist, he refutes this classification and describes his work as “an exploration of the totality of landscape”. Olsen’s unique and insightful redefinition of the Australian landscape establishes a deep sense of connection and engagement with the environment, that draws upon his experience living and travelling extensively within different parts of this majestic country. Olsen's work is represented in all Australian state gallery collections including the National Gallery of Australia and is also represented in collections internationally.
