John Eden is a prolific artist who paints and draws the everyday as well as the surrounding bushlands where he lives and works in the hills near Perth. Eden graduated from Leeds Polytechnic, BA(hons) Fine Art in 1990 and then finished his post-grad in teaching at Middlesex University. After relocating to Perth, Eden has primarily taught art and only recently moved his attention more towards his own practice.
Eden has always held close a connection with nature but life-changing recent experiences and a trip to Karijini National Park north of Perth has amped this connection to a deep and reverent obsession. Eden paints and draws the landscape of Karijini in a ritualistic and meditative way, not only in order to better understand it but also as a type of spiritual offering back to it.
Eden will have a solo exhibition at KolbuszSpace in 2023.
