Clare Brodie

Sydney

Undulating forms and soft tones are two the mechanisms at play in Clare Brodie’s intimate and balanced landscape evocations. From her knowledge of colour theory, Brodie creates palettes of gentle neutral tones, often featuring subtle accents of dusty blues and candied pinks.

Brodie's paintings distil the complexities of landscape forms into interlaced organic shapes with a playfulness that belies their complexity. Despite levelling the foreground, mid-ground, and background as a single graphic plane, they are informed by a deep understanding of pictorial composition, space and perspective.

As a Sydney based artist, Brodie has had nine solo exhibitions since 2017. She has exhibited at Aotearoa Art Fair and been shortlisted for art prizes including the Fishers Ghost Art Award and the Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize. Her collectors extend beyond Australia to the UK and South East Asia.

We are delighted to welcome her to Gallerysmith in 2024.
