Mind's Eye / John Bates - 3D virtual exhibition by Arts Project Australia

Mind's Eye / John Bates

Thu, 11/05/2020 to Thu, 11/12/2020

curated by:

John Bates is an established painter whose striking, delineated compositions are characterised by flat planes and vivid colour. Through the use of a minimal palette emphasising the two-dimensional surface, the work plays with the ordinary perception of landscapes and seascapes. His process involves creating a dense surface by applying thick layers of acrylic colour.

Mind's Eye presents a collection of Bates' 2018 and 2019 iconic landscapes that are of this world, yet ethereal in their bold representation.

Bates has been a regular artist at Arts Project Australia since 1990 and has presented two solo exhibitions at Arts Project in 2000 and 2006. He has been featured in numerous group exhibitions at Spring 1883, 2017-2019; Melbourne Art Fair, 2000-2014; Home Sweet Home: Works from the Peter Fay Collection, National Gallery of Australia touring exhibition, 2004-2005; Pacifica, Galerie Impairé, Paris, 2010; and Art des Antipodes, MADMusée, Liège, Belgium, 1996.

Public collections include the National Gallery of Victoria and Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery. His work is also held in national and international private and corporate collections.
