BROMLEY: Light After Dark

New Paintings and Sculpture are coming to Gallery One in celebration of David Bromley's recent Autobiographical Documentary

04 Nov - 16 Nov 2023

David Bromley found that art appeased the voices in his head and helped him find beauty in the world. So he made the life-changing decision to commit his whole being to something meaningful.

Light after Dark takes us into the world of this prominent Australian artist. With intimate access, we peel away the layers of anxiety, phobias and suicide survival, whilst embracing the humour, energy, and love that is ever-present in the Bromley world. David’s journey is not complete without his wife Yuge and it’s through this powerful partnership that we witness firsthand the fragility of David’s world and state of mind. As the Bromley’s live their authentic lives, interviews with friends, critics and musicians add perspectives and insight on creative process, mental health, and commercialisation of art.

Ultimately Light after Dark is a love story for the ages and a rousing exploration of life and creativity. As David himself says, “art saved my life”. But that’s just the beginning of this story…

Director Sean McDonald has documented the Bromley’s for over 5 years, leading to this incredibly intimate and unique documentary on one of Australia’s most prolific and iconic artists.

With unlimited access and openness, director Sean McDonald has worked closely with David and Yuge Bromley over many years, forging a close bond that gives the documentary a unique candidness and intimacy. More rock and roll documentary than art biopic, Sean takes us deep into the life of the Bromley’s, from late night painting sessions, to jail sleepovers, road trips and unselfconscious conversations about love, art and again, art. Family is at the heart, with Yuge and their kids, growing before our eyes, and with their creative family, as they welcome artists and musicians into their life and home. As Wolfmother’s Andrew Stockdale says, the Bromley’s live their life like it’s “a teenage sleepover that has gone on for 50 years.”
