"Mallyons use of colour and line take the viewer on a ride through the landscape giving us glimpses of not just what he sees out there but how he feels. As most Australians live on the edge of this continent it is really important that artists like Mallyon show us what the real Australia is made of "
Peter Sharp, lecturer in painting, COFA University of New South Wales 2012
"In Greg Mallyon's art 'the physical lever' of landscape lifts the viewer upward to the clouds where one sees both the land and one's place in it anew "
Anita Angel, curator Charles Darwin University Art Collection and Art Gallery 2012
Mallyon delights in his subjects. His bold, vibrant and colourful paintings which exude warmth and happiness are testimonies to this “
The Age, Melbourne Australia 1989
“Mallyon obviously recharges his batteries with these works which have the vitality of life seen in some of Brett Whiteley’s more magical landscapes and seascapes .The colour in these canvases and works on paper is striking.”
The Brisbane Review, Australia 1992
“He is one of the most innovative contemporary Australian painters “
The Wentworth Courier Sydney, Australia 1993
"The past and present are united in an exceptionally fresh body of work by this Australian artist. Mallyon’s experimentation on various materials such as wood , papers , fibres and silk has resulted in a unique combination of materials in these collages."
