MIST GALLERY presents JOHN CORBY – Beauty In Our Own Backyard
All welcome. Mist Gallery is located in Cabarita Beach, opposite the Beach Apartments.
Beauty is everywhere, nowhere more so than the stunning Northern Rivers. However, whilst some subjects simply cry out to be painted, others sit quietly in the background, waiting patiently to be SEEN. The most challenging task confronting an artist is to identify nature’s subtle beauty and somehow do it justice through the medium of paint. When I consider a subject, I focus on what I am feeling, what excites me. Conveying that emotion through paint is my ultimate goal. To achieve this, I am constantly examining the way I apply paint, the interplay of colours and how I can strengthen composition. My habitat is the Tweed Shire and I feel blessed to share her beauty.
John Corby is a self taught artist specializing in traditional impressionist oil paintings. John resides in the Northern Rivers of NSW and enjoys capturing the many moods of the ocean and his coastal surrounds. He has been painting and teaching for over 40 years and in 2008 published the book “The finishing Touch – a simple approach to better oil painting”.
John Corby has been represented by Mist Gallery since 2020.
