John Beard - Australian

Coastal Path, 2008,
Oil and Wax on Linen, 200 x 130 cm
John Beard has won some of the most prestigious art prizes in Australia.
His use of a subdued, limited palette (often black and white), and nebulous textures (via use of wax) on a large scale, produces an abstract, poetic effect, like that of Far Eastern ink paintings.
