The Damien Minton Gallery is excited to present
the new series of paintings by the young Australian artist


The exhibition opens Tuesday night, 22 March, 2011 – 6 to 8pm


James Drinkwater is a young Australian painter originally from Newcastle NSW who studied at The National Art School. He has an extensive exhibition history, including the Damien Minton Gallery in Newcastle at the age of 19. His work is already in private collections in New York, London, Singapore, Germany and Australia.

The new series ‘Nostalgia for Nothing’ has been created in Newcastle after living in Berlin.

As James explains, ‘Nostalgia for Nothing’ is brimming with nostalgia, “Overwhelmed with the detail and the sentiment I’m in my dream state again, I let my eyes wash over, in and out of focus like film.”

James is one of the many creative young Australians who now live in Berlin. You can read more about his experience in the Sydney Morning Herald article:
