SALA Exhibition at Green Tank Gallery

This year my SALA Exhibition is titled "Autumn's Light - Landscape and Leaves.
Capturing the Autumn that surrounds me in expressive contemporary oil.

The exhibition runs until August 31.

"Come and watch me paint" - this is on Sunday August 19 from 2pm. Not quite sure of the subject as yet, but it will be an entertaining expression in oil. 

Sydney Exhibition - Art2Muse Gallery Double Bay

Exhibition:Upcoming exhibition ‘Alternate Landscape’ 18 September – 1 October 2018

Gallery:Art2Muse Gallery, 357 New South Head Rd, Double Bay, Sydney, NSW 2028

South Australian landscape artist John Lacey will be exhibiting his latest series Alternate Landscapeat Art2Muse Gallery in September 2018.

Alternate Landscapeis an exhibition of contemporary landscape oil painting that explores a push into abstraction while retaining the vibrancy, texture and sense of place found in the Australian countryside. John’s fresh and unique compositional balance owes to a previous 20-year career in graphic design.

This body of work is about place, but not necessarily about familiarity. As a landscape artist you can become very insular about your subject, so here expression and location are quite an alternative for me. Moving away from the obvious, these paintings are not necessarily about what I see, but an alternate interpretation of. They explore my feelings and are expressed in various degrees of simplicity of form, line and tone that are condensed toward abstraction, without losing the sense of place.”– John Lacey
