John Cullinane draws from a personal symbolic language to create paintings that have much in common with the surrealists, though Cullinane also refers to art history, religious stories and his own life encounters for inspiration. He continues to return to the iconography and stories of Greek mythology, believing that their principals are still relevant today and to prevent them being forgotten. Cullinane’s exhibitions never fail to be seriously thought provoking and this is one of his best to date. His paintings can be found in many important Australian public collections including the National Gallery of Australia.
