John Peart is considered as one of the foremost representatives of Australian abstraction. Inspired by environment and surrounding landscape, his works are meditative compositions notable for their use of colour, richly textured surfaces, and coherently balanced compositions.

Cross Rhythms I illustrates Peart's confidence in graphic arts. Closely related to his paintings of the period, the work is notable for its compositional and confident use of the line to convey meditative experience of the surrounding environment through his unique prism of abstract vision.

Peart's importance to the evolution of Australian abstract movement had been recognised by numerous awards and prizes, inclusion in important curated survey exhibitions, and acquisition of his works by the National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, as well as other notable public, corporate and private collections in Australia and abroad.

This work is a wonderful find for budding art buyers, seasoned connoisseurs of graphic arts, and dedicated collectors of modern and contemporary abstract art movements.
