David Bromley Artist

DAVID BROMLEY paintings and sculptures for sale. David Bromley is amongst the most successful and innovative painters currently working in Australia. In his art he has managed to combine a distinctive Pop sensibility – a love of found images, photographic sources and mass media references – with an inventive relish for the effects of paint. His work divides into two distinct but related strands: images of childhood (adapted from the world of 1950s’ book illustrations) and images of the female nude. Bromley is also increasingly in demand as a portraitist. He has been a finalist four times in the Archibald Prize and the painter of some famous visages, including filmmaker Scott Hicks, actor Hugo Weaving and pop-star Kylie Minogue. Displaying an extraordinary artistic energy he has experimented with a wide variety of different media – printmaking, ceramic, sculpture and, recently, film, furniture, fashion and interiors.

EXHIBITION “TALES FROM WITHIN THE STUDIO” 11th NOVEMBER 2017

DAVID BROMLEY Q&A – UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL

David Bromley – Artist Biography

David Bromley is amongst the most successful and innovative painters currently working in Australia. In his art he has managed to combine a distinctive Pop sensibility – a love of found images, photographic sources and mass media references – with an inventive relish for the effects of paint. David Bromley’s work divides into two distinct but related strands: images of childhood (adapted from the world of 1950’s book illustrations) and images of the female nude. His children’s series typically draws on imagery from Boy’s Own annuals and old magazines, and explores the themes of childhood innocence, lost and found.

The paintings hint at both innocence and enigma in the way that they bring together elements that vacillate between nostalgia and symbolism. The nude series has used similar layering and texturing techniques in his explorations of the female figure, which tantalise the viewer with their suggestions of veiled meaning. David Bromley is also increasingly in demand as a portraitist. He has been a finalist four times in the Archibald Prize and the painter of some famous visages, including filmmaker Scott Hicks, actor Hugo Weaving and pop-star Kylie Minogue.

Displaying an extraordinary artistic energy he has experimented with a wide variety of different media – printmaking, ceramic, sculpture and, recently, film, furniture, fashion and interiors. Though born in Sheffield, England, in 1960, David Bromley moved to Australia at the age of four and has lived there ever since. As an artist he is self-taught. He has had over thirty solo exhibitions across Australia, Europe, the USA and Asia. His work is held in corporate and private collections in both hemispheres. He is listed as one of the ’50 Most Collectable Artists in Australia’ by Australian Art Collector Magazine.
