“The definition of change is to make the form, nature, content or future course of something different from what it is or from what it would be if left alone.” (dictionary.com)New location, new outlook for Todd is in abundance after recently moving from his suburban backyard to what he calls “paradise”. Fulfilling a lifetime dream to live on the water and in nature as life intended makes him feel right at home.
The upcoming exhibition “Sea Change” at Red Hill Gallery, Brisbane, takes the viewer through the evolution of expression and mark making of Todd’s works. The orchestration of his palette knife technique seduces his audience to revel in the natural beauty of nature through his seascapes and landscapes. His subject choices are temptations which evoke fond memories and moments in time.
Todd’s recent works show an abstract approach with traditional techniques, a kind of practice that has helped him to find a new dimension of painterly skill developed in perception and visual representation. His work has been exhibited in prestigious galleries and shows throughout Australia, and he has been the recipient of many honours and awards throughout his successful career.
