Since its establishment in 1984, the Charles Nodrum Gallery’s exhibition program embraces a diversity of media and styles - from painting, sculpture & works on paper to graphics and photography; from figurative, geometric, gestural, surrealist & social comment to installation & conceptually based work.
— Biography of Sadie Chandler
Sadie Chandler is a Melbourne based artist whose studio practice involves painting, drawing, sculpture and wallpaper. Her work is both abstract and representational – and always has a quirky, intriguing edge to it.
Since 2006 her wallpaper series have become a core aspect of her work. Each installation consists of thousands of original drawings which the artist pastes onto the wall by hand. In 2007 North Café in Carlton commissioned a permanent installation of her North Wallpaper series, and in 2017 she installed The Weight of Images at ACCA as part of their exhibition Unfinished Business: Perspectives on art and feminism.
Chandler completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at the Phillip Institute of Technology (now RMIT University) in 1986, a Graduate Diploma in Fine Art at the Victorian College of the Arts in 1990 and a Masters of Visual Arts at the Sydney College of the Arts in 1996.
