‘Pushing Tide’ new works by Nathan Brindle

Pushing Tide delivers a new series of drawings and paintings exploring the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Artist Nathan Brindle’s third solo exhibition documents personal narratives as well as the sublime and brutal geography encountered while traversing the region. Brindle’s work flags a new mode of experimental cartography which merges place, identity and narrative. Referencing the slowing of momentum against the tidal changes while travelling by boat. Pushing Tide touches on the legacy of artists working at the Australian frontier, where solitude in vastness of the landscape is often paralleled with interior exploration.

Nathan Brindle is a Sydney-based artist whose practice draws upon his expertise as a chef, skateboarder and fisherman. Known for collage-style mixed-media drawings and paintings, Brindle’s figurative work references travel and place, storytelling and introspection. This body of work was produced while working as a chef on board a charter boat in the Kimberley.

“This is a landscape of cliffs shattered beyond belief, defended by resinous spinifex, crocodiles and whirlpools generated by immense tides. Hidden amongst it, unknown plants, secretive wildlife and enigmatic rock art from a simpler, hauntingly unfathomable past…This chef is an artist in more ways than one.”

- Crew-mate Tim Willing, Naturalist, author, and CSIRO Research Achievement Medallist

Event: Evefresh Open Studio – Melbourne

It’s been a long while but Everfresh Studio are excited to announce that they’re back in Collingwood!

Late last year they became homeless for the first time in their 10 year history. Luckily they had help from a few friends and were able to find a temporary home down in Abbotsford by the river, so the group packed up 10 years worth of stuff and away they went

After a 6 month search they are happy to announce that they have secured a new space back in the studio’s birthplace of Collingwood.

Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to take a look inside an iconic artist collective and studio. More info on their Instagram here.
