Culminating thirty years of artistic observation, Todd presents a series of poignant, powerful and sometimes aggressive artworks of two young female muses besieged with the contest of life. 
 
Each muse whilst from different backgrounds, share remarkable similarities in the successes and failures they have persevered through in their lives. Todd’s paintings centre around intimate and personal connections with his subjects, whilst exploring the broader themes of life’s challenges.
 
With his recognisable figurative style, Todd presents the positive with the pain. This is an exhibition about life and its struggles. It is about running the gauntlet, running to win or even just running to participate”.
 
Marathon explores life’s hardships, its challenges, successes, failures and ultimately our ability to endure. The exhibition is showing from 25th July – 18th August 2018 at Mitchell Fine Art in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane.
 
Join Geoff Todd for the opening of his new show on Friday 27thJuly from 6 – 8pm. This is a free event.
 
On Saturday 28th July at 2pm, Geoff will also hold an Artist talk in the gallery discussing his work and inspiration.
