John Waller, Teacher
John Waller is an Australian artist and educator, his paintings are derived from the landscape he has an emotional empathy with. He practices a mode of landscape-based abstraction which was inaugurated by Paul Cézanne in the 1880s, and has dominated contemporary painting ever since. Like most professional artists of his generation, Waller is visibly concerned with the craft of painting: the immediate quality we are aware of when viewing his works is the brushwork, his handling of oil pigment, the way it has been trowelled and scraped and smeared into most evocative textures. Waller is represented by Artvisory and his work is held in many collections including Artbank, the Mildura Arts Centre, and Shepparton Art Gallery.
