Lew Brennan Description

Lew Brennan was born an artist. Painting and drawing from the day he could hold a pencil and selling art by the time he was a teenager. His passion for realism predates the American Super Realist genre, a school that captured his attention at a time when Australia was fixated on abstraction and representational styles. He has been committed to his own form of realism in his art throughout his career.

Describing his art as Surruralism, Brennan has been represented by numerous galleries throughout his career and has won a number of prizes for his work despite his reluctance to enter, considering “art as not a competition but rather a passion.”

Lew Brennan lives in rural Australia in the small town of Cooran in the State of Queensland. His art reflects the landscape and the people that surround his everyday. His work is held in collections throughout Australia and internationally and is a reflection of living, surviving, breathing and observing the rural life. “It's about the real deal. Finding and tracking the heart of a constantly changing phenomenon. From working and talking with the sons of the pioneers, through constant cultural change and the challenge of identifying authenticity in each new generation, this is where I find inspiration. It is the challenge of capturing the contemporary rural heart that is still beating.”

sur.rural.ism: “The place where realism, rural and surreal crash into each other, with varying degrees of the resultant blend. Surruralism is my ongoing search for the heart of rural life. It is about getting to the absolute core of real life and place, represented in such a way that the emotional triggers are captured on the canvas or paper.”
