Description:
Lot 103 DAVID BROMLEY (b.1960) “Red, Yellow and Blue Butterflies” Acrylic on Canvas and Silver Leaf 122x152cm Signed Lower Left For the Australian art market, David Bromley can do no wrong. He tapped a nerve at the very right cultural moment, just when the country needed a cheerful painter and some blithe art of good spirit. His work is instantly recognisable. Bromley is unashamedly and brilliantly the premiere pop artist of the day. If he paints it, we will buy. He has to be prolific to keep up with the demand. His rise has been astounding. It was not so long ago he was working from a little lockup shop in Melbourne Street. Now he is a man of considerable estate and a veritable art empire. These butterflies are classic Bromley, one of his charming specialties. He has them in assorted colour schemes and, of course, varieties of butterfly. They are always anatomically correct. They are a reminder that nature in all its colour and abundance is outside. And, seeing them inside, they lift a room and they lift our spirits. He tends towards black line paintings with lively backgrounds. He uses startling, unusual, unnatural colours. He counterpoints nature with imaginative decor artifice. Something about the way he has done this has tapped into the Baby Boomer spirit of illustrative art. He is bold and beautiful. Bromley works are deft of line and bright in hue. Not surprisingly, he has featured on the country’s “most collectible” list on assorted occasions. HIs storybook pictures of children are particularly sought-after. They remind one of olden days, days of innocence when children played with toy boats on beaches or bounced big rubber balls on suburban footpaths. Bromley has said he took inspiration from Boys Own Adventure books and popular cultural artists. He even creates appealing, cheeky bunnies with a hint of Beatrix Potter. One may think of David Bromley as an Adelaide artist since it was here his career took off and here that those vivid images of carefree childhood and free-ranging butterflies were embedded in him. In fact he did not get here until he was four. His parents moved from Sheffield, England. He moved on to Queensland in his teens and after some misspent years, he emerged as a potter. Painting soon followed and he has not looked back. By the mid 1980s he was famous. He emerged with distinction as a portraitist with Scott Hicks, Dean Lukin, Charles Blackman and Louise Olsen among his subjects. Six times he has been an Archibald finalist. He has had about 40 solo exhibitions and been in countless group exhibitions all around Australia as well as in Asia, Europe, Africa and America. In 2013 he married Yuge Yu and they formed Bromley & Co. They now are based in Melbourne and one could say that he is at the continuing peak of a brilliant career.
