Ziggy Grudzinskas (b. 1982, Sydney, Australia) previously studied at Camberwell College of Arts.
Grudzinskas’ current painting practice follows a dedicated investigation through materials and the perception of image.
At times a piece is begun with a particular process or act of painting in mind. Then at others, the construction of the object as a painting support is the primary concern.
The work attempts to address the absurdity of the human condition, in doing so various strategies are employed. Ideas of spirituality and behavioural psychology are juxtaposed with themes of the cartoon, music and representation of physical space.
Rendered in a light-hearted manner, the artistic gesture is used as a document of a time and an act free from mind.
