Seven artists explore the connections between China and Australia. Throughout their journeys they are commentators and initiators who, through their art, move past the comfort zones of their original homes.
They are driven by curiosity and a search for deeper understanding of cultural and personal practice.
Journey raises questions about how contemporary artists communicate beyond their every day language, and extend the boundaries of national and individual identities.

An Exhibition of travel based paintings and drawings from artist, John Barcham. The show features works inspired from travels in Africa, the Himalaya, Italy and Asia.
“One World” is my response as an artist to the experience of travel. It’s often difficult to not be overwhelmed by some of the glorious sights our world has to offer. Drawing helps form a connection with these wonders and I find that field sketching in particular allows one to be in the moment and immerse more fully into the immediate environment.
When I return I utilise field drawings and digital photography for studio works. Creating the studio work allows me to further explore the travel experience picking up on things I missed and seeing into the whole experience on a deeper level.
The world is a wonderful place and those of us fortunate enough travel to remote and fragile places realise the importance of responsible and sustainable travel. I hope that “One World” will inspire some viewers to go and see some of these places not “before they go” but because responsible, sustainable travel is one part of helping to preserve them for future generations.”
