John Olsen’s work is informed by a deep reverence for the environment. Throughout his work, this passion for the land and the animals which inhabit it, is what cuts deepest. Here, he joyfully depicts springing frogs. For Olsen, these leggy amphibians are a barometer of environmental health, a expression of playfulness and even, reminiscent of human awkwardness. Barely able to stay on the page, this lively ode to the frog without a princess is the artist at his most iconic.
Olsen is among Australia’s most recognised and iconic artists. With a career spanning over 50 years, his work is celebrated and collected by all major Australian institutions.
