John Borrack: Selected Paintings & Drawings
December 7, 2012 - February 10, 2013John Borrack is a maverick, free thinker and master craftsman. Best known for his lyrically structured paintings, Borrack’s sensitive interpretation of the Australian landscape balances the needs of technique and theory with clarity of emotional expression.
While working predominantly in watercolour and gouache, over recent years, he has exhibited his oil paintings more frequently revealing an effortless ability to move from one medium to the other. Represented in numerous collections including National Gallery of Victoria, Queensland Art Gallery, regional galleries, municipal councils, universities and leading corporate collections, this retrospective captures the haunting, evocative quality of Borrack's work spanning the last four decades.
