Clayton Tremlett

Clayton Tremlett’s work asks us to reflect on Australian History, while carefully referencing historic print processes in his choice of materials and techniques.

Tremlett predominantly uses linocut and more recently laser resist etching as his preferred mediums adding a performative element in the making of his 2016 series Beard and Influence where he created twelve self-portrait images as Australian Bushrangers.

He is a regular participant in contemporary exhibitions and prizes. In 2015, he was commissioned for the Bendigo Art Gallery’s Imagining Ned exhibition and in 2017; he produced a Vanitas etching of the convict/cannibal Alexander Pearce for Ballarat Art Galleries Romancing the Skull exhibition.

Tremlett has prints in several public collections; most notably, the Australian National Gallery, Bendigo, Castlemaine, Geelong, Mornington and Warrnambool galleries and the State Library of Victoria has acquired his artist’s book Crime and Punishment. His work is also in several private collections in Australia, England, Scotland, Austria and New Zealand.

He currently lives and works in Castlemaine, Victoria.
