John Puli: Artist Statement

John Puli is a 65 year old Brimbank-based visual artist. His work is edgy, minimalist and often speaks about the condition in which the heart finds itself. John’s latest exhibition at St Albans Library, “Born Again” is directly inspired by thoughts and sentiments of life after COVID. In this exhibition, John recycles common objects and breathes new life into them using them as his canvas.

Quotes attributable to John

“The paintings, prints and drawings that I make are direct responses to my everyday surroundings and memories of places and events – landscape plays an important part in this, but it is also creatures, large and small, which catch my eye.”

“As I deal with schizophrenia, Visual Art is a means of expressing my thoughts about the world more clearly and directly than I do with language.”

“I am fortunate that by making and exhibiting, I have found a supportive audience who seek out and respond to my work; and this in turn allows me to open up a dialogue about disability, where I am able to encourage other artists with disabilities to engage more with art communities – and through that interaction with the wider community.”

“I like to challenge myself, by working with a range of mediums such as oil paint, charcoal, pencils and watercolour. I have been inspired by Japanese woodcuts and the concepts of Wabi Sabi (beautiful imperfection) and feel a particular connection to this process.”

“I am very grateful for all the support I have had from the teachers at Melbourne Polytechnic.”
