In ‘Emus at Coorong’, John Olsen’s reverence for nature beams. Captured from the vast South Australian Coorong wetlands, it merges bird, landscape and feeling in flurry of life, recalling the region’s vital ecosystem. Like the birds who migrate from as far as Alaska to its banks, Olsen is drawn to Coorong. Here, he unearths limitless beauty, spontaneity and inspiration. And beholding ‘Emus at Coorong’, it’s not hard to see how.

Winner of the Wynne, Sulman and Archibald Prizes, represented in all major institutions and a recipient of the Order of Australia, Olsen is an icon of Australian art.
