Beautiful 1962 John Coburn, Bonfire - New in the gallery.
Queensland born artist John Coburn is celebrated for his distinctive style of abstraction. Depicting the beauty of nature and the spirituality of landscape, Coburn has refined a subtle yet powerful symbolic language in the form of large-scale paintings and tapestries and vivid screenprints. He is perhaps best known for his designs of two large tapestries for the Sydney Opera House curtains, and a series of seven for the John F. Kennedy Centre for the Performing Arts, Washington. He is represented in the Australian National Gallery, Canberra; all state and regional galleries; and the Vatican Museum, Rome.
