Ararat Gallery TAMA
W. Howard Brandenburg is an artist based in Wickliffe, a small township 50km south of Ararat.
Brandenburg is fascinated in what makes the human species so successful and what that success means for the balance of nature. His oil paintings often focus on environmental changes attributed to human activities.
Movement and energy are visible in his work, using repetition and ghost images to echo key ideas while creating a sense of motion on the surface of the canvas. Depth and intensity of colour is built up with many thin washes of oil paint.
As a child, Brandenburg grew up immersed in art with both his mother and grandmother working as professional artists in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. He went on to study art and aquatic ecology at the University of New Mexico, and has been a practising artist throughout his career. In 2018, he relocated to Australia with his wife and two children.
Brandenburg strives to create artworks that represent a global perspective in which individual viewers can see their own story.
