His work is also held in the collection of the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

The Present Perfect

Solo exhibition by Grant Beran on show from 10 May – 9 June 2018.

New works by local “Photochemical Drawing Specialist” Grant Beran are wonderfully eclectic. He masterfully combines his love of ‘old school’ photography techniques with his ongoing drawing practice. He delights in discovering the oddities that reveal themselves on light-sensitive paper, such as atmospheric marks or fading where a little light gets in. In this body of work Beran draws on his interests in pop culture and art history to create quirky characters and imagery.
