Janet Mckenzie


Godwin Bradbeer welcomes the reader into the vast, drawing-filled studio of the Melbourne artist. Beginning his career as a photographer, Bradbeer later re-ignited a youthful passion and aptitude for drawing. His works are now held in collections worldwide, renowned for their unique qualities including scale, unusual creation process and idiosyncratic subject matter. Accompanied by studio shots of Bradbeer at work and, sometimes unusual, reproductions of his works, McKenzie guides the reader through stages of Bradbeer’s career. See Bradbeer’s epic 1980s and 90s drawings, which hang ceiling to floor in his warehouse studio, and explore metaphysical states of the human condition in Bradbeer’s art.
