“Teeming with Life”
John Olsen: His Complete Graphics 1957 – 2005

By Ken McGregor in consultation with John Olsen and Jeffrey Makin
NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE
(ISBN 1 876832 93 2)

Price A$
120.00
    
 

To say that it is John Olsen's year is beyond dispute. He walked
away comfortably with this year's Archibald Prize with barely a
hint of the usual animosity and controversy, with most commentators
agreeing that regardless of the old man's prestige, it was a
winning work all the way. That was closely followed by a
brilliantly curated survey exhibition at the Tarrawarra Museum of
Modern Art, still on show and well worth the journey to
Healesville.

“John Olsen”
Journeys into the 'You Beaut Country'

By Jenny Zimmer & Ken McGregor
NOT IN PRINT
(ISBN 978-1-921394-05-8)

Price A$
120.00
    
 

At 80 John Olsen is widely acknowledged as the grand old man of current Australian art. Yet, writing as someone who has reviewed art over the years in 20 different countries, I cannot help regretting that John's art is still so little known outside this country. Not only does this deprive the artist of the kind of international recognition he deserves but it also deprives a potential world-wide audience of a truly rich and life-enhancing experience.
