Artistic heritage

All artists have some artistic heritage of some sort, whether we are aware of it or not. The creative influences can be internal or external and can appear at its own time or be developed consciously. To deny our aesthetic ‘parents’ or legacies, is a lie.
Showing together, two artists, John Olsen and Jolly Koh, we can see in their works, the visible links, in their similarities and the differences.

“By the way, a web search on Australian painter John Olsen provides interesting readings on Olsen’s artshop, which was once many a budding painter’s nestling place.” quoted from Screenshots .
