John Coburn is among Australia's most celebrated abstract artists. At first glance his work, composed of organic shapes over a flat plane, is pure aesthetic harmony. Upon closer inspection however, it betrays something deeper. Channeled through Aboriginal themes and spiritualities, Coburn deftly crosses aesthetic, earthly and divine themes.

Influenced by European culture, Roman Catholicism, Aboriginal Dreamtime and nature, Coburn continues - and evolves - elements of Matisse, Miro, Mondrian and Picasso and Rothko. His unique blend of abstraction and spirituality fascinated Coburn’s contemporaries with fellow artist Charles Blackman once reflecting: “John Coburn… strives for the ideal. His commitment to the organic shape of his religious feeling has been unfailing”.

For collectors of abstract, spiritual and modern art, Coburn is vital. He continues to be collected widely, beloved for his graphic impact and philosophical tenor.
