Craig Waddell: Highlands

WHEN : 3rd - 21st August
WHERE : Edwina Corlette Gallery

Sensual and tactile, Craig Waddell’s work celebrates both the sublime and the imperfect. Laying down paint, wet into wet, observing while intuitive colour and gesture build and change, he destroys, renews and resurrects images from everyday life.

Waddell has exhibited widely throughout Australia and received numerous prizes, awards and residencies, most notably winning the Mosman Art Prize, the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize and the Tattersall’s Art Prize for Landscape Painting as well as the Paddington and the Norville Australian Landscape Prizes. He has also been a finalist in the Archibald Prize, the Sulman Prize, the Glover Prize for Landscape Painting and the Dobell Drawing Prize.

Collections include Artbank, the Macquarie Group Collection, the Royal Bank of Scotland, Hawkesbury Regional Gallery, Maitland Regional Gallery and the Allen’s Arthur Robinson art collection.
