Collection: Rod Bax: A Retrospective Exhibition

Exhibition Dates: October 1 to November 2, 2020, daily 10am to 4pm

Best known for his gouache and watercolour works centred on the beautiful wetland areas of the south-east of South Australia, Rod Bax has been a professional, exhibiting artist for over 30 years. His concern and compassion for the preservation of the natural world is at the heart and core of his major works.

Rod has been awarded finalist in the 2018 Fleurieu Biennale Art prize; he has been a finalist five times in the prestigious Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize, winning third prize for painting; and is a finalist in the 2020 Adelaide Parklands Art Prize. He has won numerous awards and prizes for drawing and painting, including but not limited to: St Peter’s Cathedral Hanger’s prize; St. Peter’s Cathedral Art Prize, First Prize; Lions’ Art Show, People’s Choice Prize; Victor Harbor Art Show, Gold Aquisitive Award; Flagstaff Hill Art Show, first prize; John Shaw Nielson prize winner; John Leslie Art Prize winner; and the Kerwenek Lowender Art Prize, winner, open section.

After graduating from the South Australian School of Art; the East Sydney Technical College; and Torrens CAE, he worked in art education, including as Director of the Southern School of Art; Head of Art at St. Peter’s College; and Head of Creative Arts, Westminster College. He is a Fellow of The Royal South Australian Society of Arts and exhibits regularly at a number of South Australian galleries.

Recent works have seen Rod return to his love of drawing. He has great interest in the relevance of the line as an expression of movement and has used this technique in his charcoal lines, highlighting shape and movement in his studio dog works; his studies of the family Labrador. The works include charcoal, graphite, watercolour and oils.

Rod’s works are included in collections, both private and corporate, such as the State Library of South Australia; Naracoorte Hospital; St. Peter’s College; Westminster College and Naracoorte Fine Art Gallery.
