B. 1925 - 2006
John Coburn was an iconic Australian abstract artist, who was known for his prints, tapestries and paintings. At the beginning of his career, Coburn was influenced by European modernist movements Cubism and Fauvism, as well as the America's Abstract Expressionism.
From the 1970s however, Coburn developed his own visual language. Rooted in notions around nature and spirituality, this vision drew upon Eastern and Western philosophies, religion and aesthetics. The results are quietly profound. Like an aural composition, Coburn's hangs the parts of his work in utter harmony.
Coburn’s work is represented in numerous public collections in Australia and overseas at the Vatican Museum in Rome. His vividly hued tapestries hang in the Sydney Opera House and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C.
