Lives and works in Sydney
For Sydney artist Jody Graham, mark making is paramount. The artist abandons traditional drawing and painting techniques in search for new methodologies. In a meditative process, Graham circumnavigates her surrounds, collecting found objects to imprint her marks. By challenging preconceived ideas about how marks should be made, Graham allows for a more immersive and organic creative experience. The culmination of this unique practice is a raw and honest body of work which speaks of the natural world.
Graham has enjoyed success as the winner of the Greenway Art Prize in 2017 and 2020, and has been a finalist in numerous major painting and drawing prizes including the Blake Prize, the Plein Air Painting Prize at the Parliament of NSW and the Dobell Drawing Prize. Graham’s works are held in many national public and private collections as well as private collections in the United Kingdom, the United States of America and New Zealand.
