Clayton Tremlett is an contemporary Australian printmaker who is informed by the nation’s past. Informed by his research of Australian history, Tremlett investigates the nation’s identity as he depicts the stories of the mythologised figures he encountered.

Gradually fading into obscurity, the stamp is often disregarded. In this context, the artist has embraced the form of the stamp and leveraged its potential to encapsulate narratives of a vibrant history and culture. Tremlett uses the commemorative ability of the stamp to bring attention to the stories and people that are similarly at risk of being lost to history.

An innovator in printmaking techniques, Tremlett has exhibited extensively across Australia and is represented in the National Gallery of Australia, Geelong Gallery, Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, Bendigo Art Gallery among other public and private collections nationally and internationally. For examiners or enjoyers of Australian history, Tremlett is a rewarding find.
