Endurance Exhibition – Joshua YELDHAM 2017
Joshua Yeldham Endurance Exhibition
Sydney based Artist, Joshua Yeldham “Endurance” Exhibition, Private Collection is currently on show at Tweed Regional Gallery, Murwillumbah, NSW. This exhibition is one of my favourites to date.
This exceptional collection of art works came from a deep spiritual affiliation with the land and a reverential love of nature. Joshua Yeldham’s practice forms a complex interplay between narrative and myth, imagination and experience. In fact, Joshua’s representation of art is particular moving for me and thousands of others.
Joshua Yeldham’s Journey From Darkness To Light
Joshua Yeldham was targeted by school bullies when he attended the Sydney exclusive Cranbrook School. After leaving school, he eventually found his feet through travel and a successful foray into film-making. The artist and film-maker lives with his wife, Jo, and their two children, Indigo, 12, and Jude, 7. He has won a Student Emmy Award, been nominated for a Student Oscar and was a 2018 finalist in the Wynne, Sulman and Archibald prizes. Nowadays, his focus is on the things most important to him – family, fine art and the mysticism of the Australian landscape. In 2017, Joshua won the Wynne Art Prize for Mother Tree Morning Bay.
ABC One Plus One Interview
After seeing Jane Hutcheon’s ABC One Plus One Interview with Joshua, I was able to understand better the concepts behind his magnificent art works. Here is a link to that extraordinary interview. Joshua’s ‘One Plus One’ interview with ABC host Jane Hutcheon is very touching and unforgettable.
The exhibition included a large number of pictures and carvings of owls; a bird adopted by Yeldham as a fertility totem when he discovered he was infertile. Both of his children were conceived through IVF.
Today, Joshua works from his home studio and his children attend the local school which is a very different upbringing from what his parents gave him!
Discover Northern NSW
The big drawcard to Northern NSW is undoubtedly the Tweed Regional Gallery and Margaret Olley Art Centre, however, there is more to Murwillumbah than just art. Murwillumbah is a booming small town with a lot going for it. Check out my Discover Murwillumbah blog and Tumbulgum NSW blogs
