Artist Clem Millward’s major exhibition during September 2004 once again reflects the aesthetic of the Australian bush with Clem’s unique vibrancy of colour on his richly painted canvas surfaces. During the 1950s Clem studied fine art in Romania for four years. Clem then won the prestigious Wynne Prize in 1973 at the Art Gallery of New South Wales whilst still teaching art in technical educational colleges. He retired from teaching in 1985 and began to pursue the development of his own work on a full time basis. Clem was now free to paint and journeyed to China in 1995 where he spent three months painting and lecturing in the North West Xinjiang Province. He taught art and experienced a similar landscape to that of Australia.

Clem’s current exhibition is not to be missed as his deep commitment to the Australian landscape is even more intense for this exhibition. His skilful handling of the paint surface depict reality as well as the artist’s mind’s eyeview. This allows us also to contemplate and be reminded of our contemporary Australian wilderness - travelled, or imagined.

Press Release

Clem Millward reflects the aesthetic value of the Australian continent primarily with landscape structures. His ability to use rich paint surfaces with an inherent vibrancy of colour portrays the many moods of our natural world. Clem's paintings are included in important public, corporate and private collections in Australia, China, Europe and America.

ARTARMON GALLERIES has represented Clem Millward since 1976 and would commend his work to any serious collector interested in establishing a selection of Australian landscape art.

Curriculum vitae

Born in Tasmania and educated at the Launceston Grammar School and then the University of Tasmania, Thomas Lindesay Clark LLB. Began his working life as a farmer and grazier in Northern Tasmania.

While at the University he attended the classes of George Davis, a well known Tasmanian painter. He went into practice in Tasmania in 1965 after admission to the Supreme Court of Tasmania as barrister and solicitor. In 1966 he went abroard to further his studies in Fine Art.

In London he procured a place at the City and Guilds of London School of Art in Kennington and there, for a year, he studied, for the majority of the time in the sculpture studios and under James Butler.

He returned to Australia in late 1967, and to the Law, where he worked mainly in the field of legal historical research and legislative drafting in New South Wales, but has continued to paint in oils and model in wax as an amateur ever since.

He has been an artist full time since mid 1989. In October 1991 a one man exhibition of his bronze sculpture, paintings and drawings was held at Artarmon Galleries, Sydney. He has since shown works in Canberra and in the New England Regional Art Museum in Armidale, PCI Exhibitionists (1997) Group Show (Sculpture), Robin Gibson Gallery (“Sculpture 6 & 7”) 1994, 1995; North Shore Fine Art (Sculpture) (1998), North Sydney & Mosman Annual Art Competitions, the Fleurieu Prize 1998, Barker College Art Exhibition 1999 (Sculpture).

In 2001 Thomas held his second solo exhibition at the Artarmon Galleries showing both sculpture and paintings. Dr Joan Kerr in her opening address on 28th August 2001 spoke of Thomas’ continued theme of the post-synthetic mode in his paintings and his further exploration of the allegorical theme of Leda and the Swan in his bronze and aluminium sculpture.

In 2004 Thomas exhibited his sculpture at the Embleton & Kuzemko Gallery. After a travel tour to New York in early 2005 to visit several modern art museums (including Whitney, MOMA and the Guggenheim) Thomas returned to Sydney Australia to commence working towards his third Solo Exhibition with Artarmon Galleries in 2006.

In 2011 Artarmon Galleries held the memorable last exhibition of remaining works from Thomas’ Estate and his nephew Andrew Firth pays tribute to Thomas with recent work of Chinese Ink paintings and a set of photographs of Namibia. The exhibition was officially launched by Mr Clive Lucas in April of the same year and Artarmon Galleries may be contacted for further sales of sculpture and paintings from the Estate.
