David Bromley was born in Sheffield, England in 1960 and immigrated to Australia with his family in 1964. Bromley emerged as a painter in the mid-1980s. In the early stages of his career, he held solo exhibitions in Sydney and Adelaide and represented works in state and regional galleries which have included finalists in the Archibald Prize in 1999, 2001 and 2004. In his practice, David Bromley has developed themes for two distinct and unique styles of painting; the female portrait and the children’s series. In the portrait series, Bromley explores the female form. Commonly, the paintings are life size poses, whether provocative or demure, of models from fashion and film. The portraits are commanding and seductive, the models attractive and bare breasted. Works by David Bromley appear in collections around Australia including Art bank, Art Gallery of South Australia, Art Gallery of Western Australia, and the National Gallery of Victoria. This piece is part of one of David Bromley’s first ever Limited Edition screen-print series. David Bromley was born in Sheffield, England in 1960 and immigrated to Australia with his family in 1964.Bromley emerged as a painter in the mid-1980s. In the early stages of his career, he held solo exhibitions in Sydney and Adelaide and represented works in state and regional galleries, to include finalist in the Archibald Prize, AGNSW, in 1999, 2001 and 2004.In his practice, David Bromley has developed themes for two distinct and unique styles of painting; the female portrait and the children’s series. In the works based on children, impressions of the joy and innocence of childhood are ever-present. The compositions are reminiscent of bygone days and loaded with toys, pets and adventure. As seen in recent paintings of summers by the sea, the artist reveals a playful inquisitiveness that provokes fond memories of youth. In the portrait series, Bromley explores the female form. Commonly, the paintings are life size poses, whether provocative or demure, of models from fashion and film. The portraits are commanding and seductive, the females attractive and bare breasted. However diverse in his subject matter, Bromley’s work is enduringly figurative, daringly colored and executed with a graphic intention reminiscent of Warhol’s Pop Art from the 1960s. This can be seen in the layering of high key color, graphic brushwork and gold and silver leaf. Bromley states that he is inspired by Warhol’s work, ‘in particular his portraiture and figurative work. Collections – Allen, Allen & Hemsley, Sydney
