For more than half a century John Wolseley has been widely acclaimed for the way his art practice engages with the environment and broader ecology. Working across several art mediums, but mostly known for his experimental techniques in printmaking and watercolour, Wolseley's work crosses over a number of disciplines including the natural sciences and philosophy. Although he draws on empirical investigation frequently immersing himself in the Australian environment, his deeply moving and profoundly beautiful works are full of great passion and consummate skill. Land Marks III is a collaboration between artist and art historian, John Wolseley and Sasha Grishin, which has developed over more than twenty years. It builds on two earlier editions to advance a timely and well-informed assessment of an artist who has been increasingly seen amongst artists as the environmental conscience of our time.
