12VA Theory - John Wolseley

  1. 1. { John Wolseley Contemporary Landscape Artist
  2. 2.  Don’t say a word.  Simply take out your VAPD and pen. Write down all that you observe…
  3. 3.  What have we been looking at?  What frame/s does this fit under? What aspect/s of the Conceptual Framework does this fit into?  What have you observed? What did you discover about John Wolseley?
  4. 4.  Born: 1938  Settled in AUS: 1976  1979 – 2006 Travelled extensively around Australia, and some foreign countries, but mostly around desert regions and the outback. Biography
  5. 5. Wild Cries Wild Wings of Wetland and Swamp: Propositions of an Uncertain Future by John Wolseley (2011). Oil painting with waterproof varnish on ply wood.
  6. 6.  John Wolseley could pass for a 19th Century gentleman explorer.  He is an artist, a naturalist and a geographer, rolled into one.  His work is strikingly contemporary, often with inclusions of details mappings and botanical, scientific illustrations of birds, lizards etc.
  7. 7.  Wolseley documents what is left rather than documenting what he discovers.  The old gentleman naturalists were looking forward and discovering new things, whereas I am looking back, I am deconstructing that. I’m often the last to see something, rather than the first. ~ John Wolseley The last journey of the Regent Honeyeater by John Wolseley (2004).
  8. 8.  His work also is known to include snippets of poetry, scientific diagrams and musings.  His maps are not readable in the conventional sense: they whirl about through time and space…  He is a Renaissance man without the commitment to ‘perspective’. His perspective lives in his historical application of different aspects of thought and feeling.
  9. 9.  The Memory Of Fire by John Wolseley (2003).  Why do you think the artist chose to use the technique of frottage in the creation of this artwork? Frottage: rubbing charcoal, pencil etc. over a textured surface to impress it’s design upon the markings on the paper.
  10. 10.  Most people have a very goal-orientated job, but what I tend to do is go to a place and just sit there and day dream, really, and slowly, because you are so quiet and still, you get to learn a lot about a place. I start with a lot of exploratory drawings which end up in the paintings as sort of collages, then I build up a picture of the place. ~ John Wolseley
