Adrian Kraatz

  • Artist’s Statement

    A close observation of nature as well an affinity with steel and wood have enabled me to explore my art.

  • Biography

    Adrian trained and worked initially as mechanic, but then moved on to the New Hope Collieries at Rosewood, Queensland. His time in the mines, as a fitter and turner equipped him with a good practical skillset to enable him to realise his artistic vision in later years. An affinity and close observation of the natural world provided the basis for his exploratory journey.

  • Influences

    Primarily my work looks at the natural world but also is underpinned by close observation of country life and the iron scrap that rest sin so many paddocks.
