John’s book, ‘Journey Into Abstraction’ is now available. Images shown below are a selection of those included in the book.
‘Journey Into Abstraction’ is a retrospective and comprehensive biographical cornucopia of John’s work, incorporating music from Patrick Sprakes (go here to listen) and poetry from writers selected by John; Graham Best, Ted Fairclough, Monty Martin, John Micallef, Jerry Prince, Dawn Reed, Moira Trafford and James Usher.
“John’s Journey has taken him through the figurative and derivative, into abstraction and has allowed him to pursue a personal vision that is full of movement, colour, texture, mixed media, scale and gesture. This book offers a fascinating insight into the development of the vibrant abstract language of this leading figure in 20th century British art. John’s paintings are always focussed on communicating his responses to the real world. He has an incredible draughtsmanship and innate understanding that drawing is a powerful act of discovery.” Dr Sally Bulgin, publisher and editor of The Artist magazine.
