Elements in artful harmony

More Johannes for our eager readers! We’ve finally got our hot hands on Issue 45 of Indesign Magazine, which is a fantastic article by the way.

“If Kuhnen’s energy for problem solving seems boundless, so does his enthusiasm. He is extraordinarily productive, and testament to this, a comprehensive retrospective exhibition, called A Survey of Innovation, was recently organised by, and first shown at , the School of Art Gallery, ANU…it was a singular opportunity to amass, document and take stock of his life’s work to date.” Luminary Indesign, Jan Howlin

To celebrate we thought we would post this review by Kerry-Anne Cousins of Johannes exhibition A Survey of Innovation, selected works of which were shown at Bilk Gallery in March this year. (click to enlarge)
