Graeme Drendel – Isolation and Inclusion

Born in regional north-west Victoria, award winning artist Graeme Drendel works as a figurative painter in Melbourne.

This exhibition takes from themes of isolation, with a back drop of vast Australian landscapes. With a strong tinge of surrealism we see figures of solitude and contemplation, whether alone or in groups.

Located on the first floor corridor of the Brimbank City Council office and public library, there is certainly lots of foot traffic passing through each day. It is hard not to pause and reflect on the harsh imagery displayed in front of you.

Being in a region full of diversity (with over 156 different nationalities living locally!) Graeme’s work asks us in Melbourne’s west to consider the concept of isolation, and both the comforts and discomforts that come with it.
