ADAM NUDELMAN     Australia  1970 -

"Adam Nudelman is a painter of exceptional talent. He achieves what most people believe is central to good art: making it look real. This is no more apparent than in the skies which dominate this body of work. From the glow of the morning light to the foreboding sky of an approaching storm, Nudelman articulates that feeling of pure wonderment experienced when we stand before nature at its most beautiful" Vincent Alessi Artistic Director LUMA

Completing studies at the Victorian College of the Arts in 1994, Adam Nudelman embarked on an artistic journey of landscape painting in the tradition of the Heidelberg School and the Antipodean movement. Nudelman's technique is highly refined and methodical, rendering form and light with relative ease. Complex structures placed in an otherwise romantic landscape are one striking feature of his work. Transposing the realms of picture-making, Nudelman has engaged in issues of cultural heritage and identity whilst making poignant reference to the plight of his Jewish forebears. It is the great challenge for an artist to explore themes of displacement, love, birth and neo-colonisation without resorting to clichéd imagery. Nudelman's recent body of works speaks of very human experiences without referencing the figurative; the paintings are contemporary allegories. Nudelman's work is represented in public, corporate and private collections in Australia, including The National Museum, Canberra; The Australian Jewish Museum, Melbourne and The Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne.
