Geoff Bromilow

Geoff Bromilow is an Australian wood sculptor who specialises in the creation of sumptuous art from fallen timber. Residing in the picturesque Adelaide Hills, Bromilow uses River Redgum, Huon and King Billy Pine to create works of simplicity, rather than complexity, with flowing lines, elegant forms and natural beauty.

Always refining his methodologies and striving to reach an ‘aesthetic nirvana’, Bromilow’s dynamic and sensual works have evolved from the continual re-evaluation of his techniques.

Beginning his career as an arborist in the early 1980s, Bromilow started his own timber recycling business following the Ash Wednesday bushfires that devastated much of south-eastern Australia.

An artist and conservationist, Bromilow began work as a professional wood sculptor in 1995.

He says “When I’m in the studio working on any wood sculpture, I am aware of the creative power flowing through all life and through the wood… I am at peace knowing that I can release the divine force inherent in its substance – a materiality that has come into being over hundreds, or even thousands of years. What an honour to work with these beautiful timbers.”
