Olsen's work has been marked by a deep engagement with the Australian landscape and he lived for long periods in different parts of the country and travelled widely in it.
Although John Olsen has been labelled as an abstract artist, Olsen rejects this label, stating, 'I have never painted an abstract painting in my life'. He describes his work as 'an exploration of the totality of landscape'.
