Graeme Roche

Graeme Roche was an exciting and innovative artist of unique quality. The iconography of the work affirmed his Australian heritage. Born in Melbourne in 1944, his wide experience of life included training as an air pilot and a chef. Graeme developed a strong interest in painting and soon displayed a talent that enabled him to work as an artist of considerable repute. In 1980’s visits to Europe broadened his artistic experience and revived his keen interest in food and red wine. This led to Graeme moving back to Melbourne. He was fascinated with the dramatic effect of light and mood on otherwise ordinary and familiar objects, creating evocative and enigmatic images in the surreal tradition. Tragically Graeme succumbed to lung cancer in 1995. Graeme was married to Gill Del-Mace and these editions of Graeme’s work are done with her full permission. These editions are estate editions and Gill has signed for Graeme. Roche's works are in major corporate and private collections both in Australia and overseas. Subject matter are motifs from public environments eg. Beaches, parks, swimming pools, signs, statues, street icons, anywhere that is accessible to man. I draw inspiration from everyday situations often portrayed slightly out of context... reality juxtaposed. I share this fascination with Smart, Delvaux and Magritte, 'Inanimate objects live'. Surrealism is one of the important and ongoing Art movements of this century."
