Godwin Bradbeer’s work reflects an enduring inquiry into depicting the human figure. In doing so he draws upon the primitive, the classical and the contemporary aesthetics of many cultures and disciplines.
Bradbeer has been exhibiting since the early 1970’s, and whilst he has substantial experience as a photographer and a painter, his most definitive practice is in various modes of drawing. As such this Melbourne based artist is an acclaimed virtuoso draftsman, and the recipient of many major drawing awards in Australia. He creates compelling figurative imagery that seeks to establish credible descriptions of human beauty, physical ordinariness and individual and collective tragedy. In a significant respect his work also examines the viability of hand rendered imagery in an age of electronic media.
Bradbeer has exhibited widely throughout Australia, including a curated major retrospective exhibition ‘The Metaphysical Body – A Survey’ which travelled between 2006-2008 around prominent regional galleries throughout Victoria and NSW.
His works are represented in public and private collections in Australia and overseas, including the Australian National Gallery, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Art Gallery of South Australia and Parliament House, Canberra amongst others. Since his first solo exhibition at James Makin Gallery in April 2008, Bradbeer’s work has also been acquired by Ballarat Fine Art Gallery, Tweed River Art Gallery, Shepparton Art Gallery, and Deakin University.
Thames & Hudson are currently producing a major monograph due for release mid 2018 to co-inside with his next solo exhibition at James Makin Gallery.
