Acrylic on Canvas – Peter believes that his success as a painter relies on his love of learning, his personal drive and his curiosity and ability to capture true feelings in his work that connect with the viewer. He has a passion for painting which he describes as a physical pleasure that runs alongside his
desire to represent himself and his ideas. He is unwilling to limit himself to one style, one specific pursuit or one thematic search in order.
“The inspiration for my exhibition comes from the beauty of our vast Australian landscape. My artwork is an attempt to capture a deeper meaning and spirit which comes with my connection to this land. I have developed a great interest in the naturally occurring and man made patterns and designs and represent the organic landscape with layers of textured paint, pattern and colour.”

Unsurpassed shorelines, meandering creeks, the iconic Cable Beach, rugged
pindan rocky cliffs, these elements all combine to set the stage for the main
