" John Forrest paints bulletin boards with such skill that you want to run your fingers across the surface to test whether your eyes are fooling you or not"

Neville Weston - The Adelaide Advertiser


" Forrest’s paintings reawakens us to the familiar scenes with focal clarity and obsessive detail. The images "freezing" the mundane, can have an enigmatic effect."

Communicating Arts


"John Forres works dryly & competently within the photo-realist convention. But somewhere along the line of dry, matter of fact paintings, a shift to fantasy opens the door to Magrittian ambiguities, evoked with commendable restraint."

Nancy Borlase, The Sydney Morning Herald
