Sculpting with paint... John Badcock creates rich, texturally luscious portraits and landscapes...

The immense skill of John’s painterly ability is demonstrated in these stunning self - portraits which are so thickly built up, yet the oil paint is still controlled, molded and carved into capturing the particulars of individual human expression and the depths of emotion. John has become renowned for portraiture and he is a published portraitist in his first book, “Passing People – 100 portraits”. This book provides an in depth look at his latest series of 100 Portraits, which was exhibited at the Waikato Museum at the end of 2015.

John Badcock has exhibited since 1985, and achieved many accolades, including many art awards over his career and in 2007 he was selected for the Archibald Salon des Refuses exhibition in Sydney, Australia. In 2008 he was elected to the South Canterbury Hall of Fame, Timaru. Badcock’s series ‘The Last Supper’, was recently exhibited at the Christchurch Cathedral. Early in 2015 John was included in the top 10 Great Artists from New Zealand list, compiled by theculturetrip.com and joins the other great artists such as Bill Hammond, Jason Greig and Kushana Bush.

Badcock’s works are held extensively in major public collections throughout New Zealand including Christchurch Art Gallery, The Hocken Library, Dunedin, New Zealand Portrait Gallery, Wellington, Aigantighe Art Gallery, Timaru, Andersons Park, Invercargill and internationally in various private collections and at the Sackman Corporation in New York.
