Godwin Bradbeer is widely considered to be one of Australia’s leading draftsman, and has exhibited both nationally and internationally since the 1970s. Bradbeer won the Dobell Prize in 1998. His fine, darkly rendered works – chinagraph, silver oxide, charcoal and pastel – are focussed upon the subject of humanity: the miracle of existence and its fragility. His upcoming exhibition at James Makin Gallery, New Work, Old Myths, explores this subject through the lens of mythology; as Bradbeer reflects, “Are we good? Or are we bad? Setting aside the dogma, we are often well described in the ancient record and in the mythologies.”
