An Exhibition of new paintings by John Caldwell. This new work by John Caldwell continues his preoccupation and evident love of the natural Australian landscape. There is a great sense of silence and solitude in his watercolours, which hold atmospheric qualities derived from Caldwell’s alliance of both a plein-air and studio approach to art-making.
“While some images are inspired by specific locations, my approach is more an interpretative one than a concern for accurate detail.”

Caldwell gathers reference material from his travels through sketches and photography, drawing on these resources to create finished landscapes. This technique requires the use of the artists own experience and remembered impressions of a site. His artworks hold the sense of both record and memory simultaneously with a strong subjectivity based on place.
Recognised as one of Australia foremost watercolour painters, John Caldwell is represented in most Major Australian Public collections including The Art Gallery of NSW Collection and many regional gallery collections.

In these paintings John Caldwell has consolidated many years of journeying through Australia's unique landscape, drawing in his sketchbooks specific landscape full of great complexity and visual interpretation.
He understands the landscape through living in it and drawing it - a long-felt affinity with the Australian landscape that John Caldwell translates from his drawings, photographs, memory and his 'gut' experience into paintings in his Blackheath studio

John Caldwell's vision is entirely of the landscape: its immense, and diverse grandeur, its natural forms, textures and colours, not human figure intrudes on the timelessness of the landscape.
