John Dyer Paintings of Australia

Some people see a similarity between John Dyer's paintings and the work of Australian artist Ken Done. Both artists love vibrant colour and childlike forms but their subject matter differed until John Dyer was asked by Australian wine company Banrock Station to fly over to be their artist in residence.

This was the first time that John Dyer had painted Australia and the results have been spectacular and very Australian in their look and feel.

John spent several days working in the Australian outback making a new series of paintings exploring the wildlife and biodiversity of the wetlandsthat Banrock Station have regenerated.

These very special paintings are a delight and record one of the artist's most succesful residencies to date. John completed ten original paintings during his residency at Banrock Station and we are delighted to have acquired two from the series to exhibt here.

All of the Australian paintings are also available as limited edition prints.
