Aussie Artists in Perth

Dale Cox, John Nicholson, William Elcholtz, Cathy Blanchflower represent the Aussie Art world. Western Australia, 4 – 25 May.

Johnston Gallery in Mosman Park is currently exhibiting a pretty impressive group show by four exciting eastern-states based artists in IDIOSYNCRASY II.

Each with their own distinctly Australian style, Dale Cox, John Nicholson, William Eicholtz and Cathy Blanchflower will showcase a diverse exhibition of paintings and objects until May 25.

Dale Cox, from Melbourne is a painter and sculptor. His sculptures feature his painterly skills, where plastic toy vehicles like trucks and forklifts, carry parcels of land, which have been meticulously painted on with bush landscapes.

Sydney based artist John Nicholson’s work is characterised by highly formal
plastic assemblies of coloured stripes. In 2007 he was placed as one of Australia’s 50 most collectable artists in Australian Art Collector, and he has been included in many prestigious sculpture award exhibitions.

William Eicholtz, another Melbourne artist, was recently featured in Australian Art Collector. These objects d’art are sophisticated kitsch, featuring an absurd humour of displaced art historical iconography from classicism to rococco.

Cathy Blanchflower, originally from Perth and now based in Melbourne, will
be showing a selection of new paintings that feature her recognisable flair
for colour, shape, rhythm and pattern.

A great showcase of the artisitic talent Australian is known for.
