Artist Profile

Graeme
Peebles

Born 1955, Melbourne, Victoria

‘For forty years Graeme Peebles has drawn out imagery from the velvety depths of the mezzotints he so richly renders, and from the recesses of his fertile imagination. In doing so he has developed an aesthetic and conceptual approach to art making that stands alone in the spectrum of contemporary Australian art. This is founded upon his unique combination of exquisite detail and technical refinement, with a powerful, at times playful visual vocabulary of natural and manmade elements.’

– Marguerite Brown

Mezzotint printmaker Graeme Peebles studied printmaking at RMIT between 1973 and 1975, where he later lectured from 1981 to 1986.

Graeme has held solo exhibitions in Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane and internationally in Italy, Thailand, Singapore and at the British Print Biennale.

His work is held by the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; Parliament House, Canberra; Artbank, Sydney; most state galleries, several regional and university galleries and internationally in collections in Italy and the United States.
