Marathon – Geoff Todd

Marathon – Geoff Todd

The common analogy ‘Life is a Marathon’ is explored by artist Geoff Todd in his new exhibition showing at Mitchell Fine Art in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane from 25th July. Culminating thirty years of artistic observation, Todd presents a series of poignant, powerful and sometimes aggressive artworks of two young female muses besieged with the contest of life.

Each muse whilst from different backgrounds, share remarkable similarities in the successes and failures they have persevered through in their lives. Todd’s paintings centre around intimate and personal connections with his subjects, whilst exploring the broader themes of life’s challenges.

With his recognisable figurative style, Todd presents the positive with the pain. “This is an exhibition about life and its struggles. It is about running the gauntlet, running to win or even just running to participate”.

Marathon explores life’s hardships, its challenges, successes, failures and ultimately our ability to endure. The exhibition is showing from 25th July – 18th August 2018 at Mitchell Fine Art in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane.
