Bio

JOSHUA YELDHAM

Born 1970, Sydney

“Drawing from a deep spiritual affiliation with the land and a reverential love of nature, Joshua Yeldham’s art practice forms a complex interplay between narrative and myth, imagination and experience. Working across painting, photography, drawing and sculpture, the artist has developed a singular aesthetic that often conflates these various mediums, such as his characteristic oil paintings with sculptural assemblages on board or his pierced and carved photographs. His distinctive visual language fuses the physical elements of the landscape with the metaphysical modalities of history and mythology.”

Joshua Yeldham has exhibited widely throughout Australia and internationally. Recently awarded the prestigious Nancy Fairfax Artist Residency, he created new works exhibited in association with his retrospective exhibition at Tweed Regional Gallery (2017). Yeldham has been a finalist in numerous prestigious awards including the Wynne Prize (2019, 2018, 2017, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2009), Archibald Prize (2013), Sulman Prize (2006, 1998) and Mosman Art Prize (2005, 2003) and in 2015 he participated in the prestigious London Art Fair, ART15. Yeldham’s work is held in many important collections including Mosman Art Gallery, Manly Art Gallery and Museum, Australian Stock Exchange, University of Wollongong and BHP Billiton Collection, as well as numerous private collections in Australia and overseas.
