Surrender: A Journal for My Daughter

Joshua Yeldham

Special price is only available online

In this journal for his daughter Indigo, Joshua Yeldham charts his life from growing up on the Hawkesbury River to becoming one of the most astonishing artists Australia has produced in decades. Yeldham’s first foray into literature, Surrender is a stunning creation that mirrors the complexity of his artistic practice, layering painting, photography, drawing and prose.

Surrender
navigates Yeldham’s early life from the intense pain of schoolyard bullying to his time at Rhode Island School of Design, hiking in Venezuala and his odyssey into the Australian outback in an old kombi. It’s a love story too, recounting how Joshua and his wife Jo - his collaborator and a photographer in her own right - met, and their journey through his infertility, IVF, and the joy of parenthood.

Surrender is an immensely powerful work, celebrating Yeldham’s deeply spiritual affiliation with the land, belief in the succour of the creative imagination, and a reverential love of nature.
