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.
— Short Introduction by Charles Nodrum
Two concurrent solo shows of work by John Peart and Karl Wiebke; friends and colleagues who shared a mutual respect for one another's work - and two artists I have always admired. Works have been selected by myself, Karl, and the Peart family - dating mostly from the last decade. This is the first exhibition of Karl's work in Melbourne for some years and the second show of John's work we have held since his untimely death in 2013. John's show includes a group of 'Night Cloud' paintings that were inspired by a trip to Central Australia and constitute the last series he painted; this will be the first time they're shown in Melbourne.
