Beard and Influence by Clayton Tremlett

03 5722 0865

Until 8 Jul 2018

An exhibition of prints by artist, Clayton Tremlett.

Beard and Influence invokes the dictionary definition of the verb to beard – to oppose face to face, set at defiance or to boldly confront or challenge.

Clayton Tremlett’s bushranger self-portraits provoke consideration about convictism, larrikinism, resistance to authority and the emergence of a national identity.

In reconstructing himself (over four years) as these figures – part men, part myth – Tremlett asks to consider what it is that different styles of beard might signify for modern-day wearers and observers, and what elements of masculinity are men seeking to express or project in wearing them.
