John Anderson at Australian Galleries

These paintings could be described as scenes from American Graffiti.

Cars, ice cream cones, jelly beans, young boys and girls.... Guns and airplanes, swimming pools...

The artist has a masterful skill to put these things together in beautiful impressionistic paintings.

These images are things he has been through.

I really like these optimistic, playful, but, in a sense very restrained paintings.

“The painting process is really a series of intuitive moves.”

"Painting is supposed to be a journey where you find something out”.

“I don’t want to be too obsessed with them, but sometimes you just have to paint your way through something …”
