John Cottrell Description

John Cottrell started work as a printmaker in Wagga Wagga and Newcastle thirty years ago, having found a love of colour in screen printing. After leaving art school he moved on to gouache paintings, doing small narrative journey paintings which incorporated the Byron landscape with animal symbolism, trains and various flying machines. In 1991 he moved up to the North Coast to prepare for a show at Victor Mace Fine Art in Brisbane. His work progressed through various styles including sound based colour field paintings of cicadas to his current work of acrylic on board and linen. John's studio is in Byron Bay, a beautiful environment to work in. He shows in galleries in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Bangalow and Byron Bay and he has had work in art fairs in Asia, Canada, USA and Europe.
