ABOUT THE ARTIST
Glendon Cordell is an abstract landscape painter from Melbourne. Cordell is a graduate of the University of Tasmania with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Given this academic underpinning, Cordell has a particularly refreshing perspective of his art, with a simple focus on conjuring joy in the viewer and garnering artistic appreciation.
Cordell captures undulating hills, the deep hues of Australian water ways and the burnt mustard of sun kissed fields; highlighting the technicolour dreamscape of Australia. He delivers vibrant and playful depictions that will brighten and enliven the senses.
In his process, Glendon uses layer upon layer of acrylic paint, ensuring his work is detailed and concise. Glendon experiments with gouache and watercolour, but prefers a maleable acrylic base for his work.
“It is simply my hope to relay emotions of calm and enjoyment through my work.”
Cordells work explores the relationship between colour, texture and formations of mark making on canvas. Glendon’s primary inspiration comes from the natural world and all that it inspires within. He takes what is seen externally and synthesises this with his internal experience of those visualisations to produce abstractions abundant with his unique style.
