Adrian Bradbury

Psychological Seascapes


Bradbury, who grew up in Melbourne, has had a long and strong connection with the Tasmanian Landscape, first visiting the state to rock climb and hike over 10 years ago. Drawn to the landscape and the quality rock climbing and hiking, he returned most summers.

Adrian moved to Hobart with his partner 3 years ago, and works part-time maintaining walking tracks on Mt Wellington.

Bradbury’s most recent body of work Darkness and Light on the Tasman feature psychological seascapes.

My paintings have evolved and abstracted, resulting in works which are more psychological and are as much a view into my interior space as they are a view of the Tasman Sea.

Adrian Bradbury received his Diploma of Visual Arts in 2003 from RMIT and is currently undertaking an Honours Degree in Painting at the University of Tasmania. He was a finalist in the Waterhouse Natural Science art prize in 2016 and his work has featured in Lume, White Horses, The Examiner and The Advocate. Solo exhibition venues include Maker’s Space Gallery (Burnie), Salamanca Arts Centre (Hobart), Stillwater Gallery (Launceston) and Dark Horse Experiment (Melbourne).
