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.
— Exhibition Introduction by Charles Nodrum
For some time I have been musing about an exhibition of monochrome paintings and have now been happily spurred on by the consignment of an exceptional ceramic by Marea Gazzard and by the opportunity to show an equally exceptional - and extraordinarily large - work by Julie Irving. Unique in its scale, the work was part of a commission for two large paintings that were installed opposite each other in a Melbourne board room. Each painting constituted four panels – a configuration which required a singular logic to compose.
