This rare original graphic from the 1970 s is by one of Australia s most respected and influential abstract artists, John Peart. Driven by experimentation, Peart' s oeuvre was varied and marked by a continual evolution rather than any fixed style. After initial success as a 'Field' artist in the late 1960s, Peart evolved his practice towards minimalism and then later, to a style specifically inspired by Australia. His life was was a spiritual quest and mark making was a process of 'becoming' through aesthetic perception. He described his non figurative response to nature thus:
"I see pictorial space as an inner landscape for the minds eye to roam".

His work has been included in major curated exhibitions including the seminal 1968 exhibition The Field at National Gallery of Victoria; Recent Australian Art at the Art Gallery of New South Wales (1973); Field to Figuration at the National Gallery of Victoria (1986) and numerous exhibitions of the Wynne Prize at the Art Gallery of NSW. He is a past winner of the prestigious Archibald Prize (1998) and twice winner of the Sulman Prize (1994, 2000). A survey exhibitions of his work toured Australia during 2004-06.
