Adrian Bradbury Artist Bio:
Adrian grew up in the outer south eastern suburbs of Melbourne. He studied Visual Arts at RMIT (2002/03), and after completion travelled widely for the next ten years. Working ski seasons, painting, and climbing obsessively in the summer months. He now lives and works in Hobart, Tasmania. Adrian's art is inspired and informed by his own personal experience of the world. This is reflected in his large and diverse body of work. Currently Adrian is busy working on a series of Tasmanian sea, and landscapes informed and facilitated by Adrian's current part-time job as a track worker, which periodical takes him to some remote parts of the state. In this current series the weather dominates the landscape, with rain and wind being physically wiped, smudged and slashed across the canvas in physical gestures of paintbrush, rags, palette knife, and hand. In this way the represented landscape often becomes concealed under subsequent layers of paint. With often only small sections of the original landscape recognisable. Most recently Adrian has been drawing from his past practice as a graffiti artist and combining elements of spray painted and rollered 'graffiti' layered over the top of his more traditional landscapes. These paintings invite the viewer to meditate on the history of place and have been informed by readings on ecology and the history of land use within Tasmania.
