Victorian born Graeme Drendel’s figurative works are meditations on the isolated individual, often within the stark Australian landscape. His subjects are figures of solitude and introspection, even when depicted in groups or clusters. Their expression and attire are suggestive of larger obscured narratives, left to the viewer to decipher. Drendel has held seventeen solo exhibitions with Australian Galleries since 1990 in both Melbourne and Sydney. His work has been included in several group exhibitions including the Alice Prize (1985) and the Sulman Prize (2002). His work is held in the collections of Artbank, Newcastle Regional Gallery and the Bundannon Trust (1).
