John Peart is one of Australia’s more prominent abstract painters working today. He first achieved recognition through The Field exhibition of 1968, the National Gallery of Victoria’s landmark survey exhibition of Colour Field painting and geometric abstraction in Australia, and has shown regularly at Watters Gallery in Sydney since 1964. He has been awarded numerous prizes and is represented in all State and National collections. In 1997 he won the Wynne Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. The Campbelltown Arts Centre mounted a travelling exhibition covering four decades of his painting in 2006, the first comprehensive survey of his work.
He was interviewed by Harvey Shields at Watters Gallery during his exhibition Themes & Variations in September, 2007.
