John Lennox was a central figure in a circle of artists, collectors and socialites that existed concurrently alongside the academic art establishment of Melbourne during the 1970’s and 1980’s. As is evident to any observer of his sophisticated and highly considered work Lennox was a formally trained painter, he studied under the tutelage of George Bell in the early part of his career and became an Artist who created serene imagery as well as works with extraordinary psychological complexity when he deferred from painting idyllic garden or bush scenes. Enigmatic, alluring and charismatic, Lennox sought to show beauty as well as delve deep into the psyche of a world more akin to a surreal dream.

Lennox was a finalist in the Wynne Prize (1974) and won the Camberwell Rotary Prize (1974) in that same year, in 2008 Lennox had a touring retrospective at Benalla Art Gallery (2008) & Castlemaine Art Museum (2008), he is represented in the Queensland Art Gallery, Benalla Art Gallery, St Vincent’s Hospital and in numerous private and corporate collections in Australia and Europe.

Lennox first exhibited with John & Maureen Hoerner at ‘Peaches’ gallery in 1972 and then in the early 1980s exhibited with John Hoerner & Alison Waters as a part of the John Hoerner Galleries stable. During his lifetime Lennox exhibited consistently from 1972 for 24 years until his passing in 1996. Since 2014 Lennox has had four solo exhibitions with Kick Gallery / Jacob Hoerner Galleries, From the Archive (2022), Manifold (2018), Key works (2016) and Enigma (2014), participated in numerous group exhibitions and was a part of Spring 1883 in 2021 & 2018.

From the Archive marks 50 Years since Lennox first exhibited with Peaches / John Hoerner Galleries and then Kick Gallery / Jacob Hoerner Galleries representing a 50 year period in which there has been a collaboration between the Hoerner & Lennox Families, a major half century milestone to be properly marked at the 20th & 50 Year Milestone celebrations on the 28th of July 2022.
