Ivan Goodacre has been exhibiting professionally for the past decade, in both group and solo exhibitions. More recently he has been a finalist in consecutive years in the Calleen Art Award (2010, 2011) and a finalist in the Goulburn Art Award (2011).

Artist Statement I have always been interested in the landscape. I was born in the Central West of NSW and I spent my early years on a farm, where my parents and grandparents owned a wheat growing property near Woodstock. I was often drawing and observing the land from an early age, especially, the crop farming areas. The legacy of the early settler artists, such Augustus Earle and Eugene von Guerard, has often been a reference point for my work. In recent years I have become more interested in the effects of climate on the land and how this affects the communities of rural towns. The dominant theme of my current work is small settlements: their purpose and history, architecture, layout and surrounding land features of towns, villages and significant properties in NSW and Victoria.

The gallery’s Stockroom will hold a selection of new work by Ivan, shortly.

His solo exhibition with the gallery is scheduled for 1st to 19th May 2012.
