Retrospect Galleries is thrilled to present John Cottrell as "Artist of the Month" for November 2013.
John Cottrell has lived and painted in Byron Bay for the past 20 years and is one of the North Coast's most established artists. John started work as a screen printer then began painting with gouache on paper. These paintings were of quirky, little journeys and told stories using animals as symbols and ship-shapes as vehicles. Many of these earlier paintings were based in Byron Bay and incorporated the landscape. His current work has been a conscious move away from storytelling towards an all-encompassing concept based on science and philosophy. His surfaces have a burnished quality and a simplicity that, through colour, draw the viewer into the painting. These paintings have an organic quality that suggest a process of change or growth and relate to universal processes. John's paintings have been bought by collectors in many countries throughout the world, from Iceland to Brazil to Japan. We strongly welcome you to come and discover his new series of work at the gallery!
