Geoff Todd will be in attendance on opening night.
Artist Talk: Saturday 5th March from 2pm in the gallery.
‘Beautiful Beasts’, an exhibition by Australian artist Geoff Todd, will be opened by Leo Sayer on Friday 4th March. The evening will also include the launch of Todd’s new book ‘Beautiful Beasts’, a comprehensive full colour, hard bound book produced as a companion to the exhibition.
Conceived and contemplated over the past 30 years, this exceptional body of work has been laboriously researched and executed. Long a champion of the persecuted and misunderstood, Todd has analysed the mythological creatures of several cultures and how they have morphed into something far departed from their original incarnation. Religion, modesty and misinformation has led to this point.
Geoff Todd is a renowned Australian artist with strong followings in the north of Australia, Asia and Europe. Todd was established as a serious artist at a young age with acquisitions by the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria and numerous regional public galleries throughout Australia. His work has been included in contemporary art exhibitions across the United States, Austria, Hong Kong and Italy.
“An artist often draws inspiration from those less fortunate, down trodden, misrepresented or abused” says Todd.
‘Beautiful Beasts’ is his attempt to address the misinformation that has led to the demonization and misconceptions around these creatures.
The exhibition is proudly supported by
