John died on 6th January at the age of 85. He was a much admired artist and a valued friend. I know many people will share my sadness at his passing but will also feel so lucky to have met him, to have seen his wonderful paintings and to have enjoyed his company.
I curated his last exhibition which was held at The Malthouse in August 2016. Here he showed three magnificent paintings alongside abstract artist Patrick Jones and ceramicist Chris Prindl.
He will be greatly missed.
