CHG Directors Statement: Like many Australian artists James Willebrant uses the Australian landscape as an inspirational springboard for his exploration and celebration of the Human Condition. His idiosyncratic response has seen the development of a style and vision, the uniqueness of which is immediately recognisable. He has nurtured and honed this original vision over many years; refusing to compromise its integrity, and above all respecting the work and the life of each painting.

His style has been variously labelled, Surreal, Naive, Pop Art, and even Existential... but no label can really encompass or describe the subtleties of this artists unique work. He paints the Australian landscape and captures its amazing light. He celebrates nostalgic Australian popular culture. He paints the human form in this landscape and as we look at his everyman-everywoman figures, caught in a particular moment of being, we are brought back to some personal emotion, experience or memory. Such a response needs no label or critical thesis. It just is... the essence of Good Art. It provokes, it stimulates, and it celebrates. It defines something about our essence, which is beyond words.
