John Waters’ Illuminate exhibition

  • Image: Column by John Waters

Architect-turned-artist John Waters brings his passion for beautiful design, perspective and construction to his painted works.


John Waters’ Illuminate shows October 8-22 at Hill Smith Gallery – 113 Pirie Street, Adelaide.

Carefully planned and executed, Waters’ paintings reflect his interest in perfection, but also explore his fascination for the dream-like nature of reality.

Waters has framed and juxtaposed mementoes such as teacups, ladders, tables, chairs and drapery with landscapes and interiors that provide alternate points of view. These paintings evoke a sense of both weightlessness and physicality – seeming to invite the viewer to become a part of the world in which they exist.
