Season 3 Episode 61 – Jody Graham multidisciplinary artist

 2021· ART WANK

Jody Graham

‘Drawing is at the core of Jody Graham’s multidisciplinary art. She relentlessly explores new techniques and investigates contemporary drawing practice. To do this she builds on and then moves beyond conventional drawing processes in search of new methods and tools that connect drawing with the fundamental need to make symbolic marks.’

Jody Graham is an amazing woman and an extremely talented, fearless, and innovative artist to boot. She let us into her Marrickville studio for the interview, which is a treasure trove of her bower bird tendencies alongside beautiful energetic paintings and drawings. We talked to Jody about her process, the ideas behind her art and her lifes journey through alcolism and beyond to artist extraronaire.

Jody is represented by Nanda Hobbs and her next show, ‘Somewhere to Land’, is from 27th May to 5 June.

Birds

The birds flight has been a symbol of freedom to man since the dawn of time. During this recent period, when our movement has been restricted and our freedoms curtailed, it seems appropriate to return to this motif. This theme has been chosen as a gathering point for this group show, to allow us to transcend the physical restrictions on our freedom through community and artistic collaboration

Exhibition 12 – 26th March 2021

Blue Mountains Portraits 2021
23 Jan – 7 Mar

Blue Mountains Portraits is the Cultural Centre’s annual celebration of the local community and its diverse members. The exhibiting artists portray the unique people that make up the cultural fabric of the Blue Mountains and tell the stories behind the person.
A Blue Mountains City Art Gallery exhibition.

Buried in the Garden 1 – Clare Delaney

I entered a portrait of Clare Delaney into Portraits 2021 at The Blue Mountains Cultural Centre.

I met Clare during the installation of the Occupied exhibition at the BMCC in June 2020.

I was instantly attracted to Clare’s earthy personality and artwork. The more we talked the more I saw how her life and artwork linked. Clare loves her garden and art, connecting both by burying her artwork in the garden and letting nature do its part.

Clare generously agreed to participating in an intimate project which involves me drawing her portrait and entering it in Portraits 2021. After the exhibition ends the artwork will be buried in Clare’s garden, left for nature to do its thing, then exhibited again in Portraits 2022.

Buried in the Garden 1 has been made using naturally found charcoal, ochres and sap so it is tastier for the creatures that live in Clare’s garden.
