In Conversation Series: Peter Sharp Online
Join artist Peter Sharp ‘in conversation’ with MAG&M curator Ross Heathcote for a lively and engaging discussion.
Peter Sharp’s exhibition of forty ‘plein air’ paintings selected from his practice over the past 30 years reflect the artist’s travels around regional and remote Australia and have become part of his ‘toolkit’ for larger abstract works. Photographs of the painted view in situ illuminate the artist’s process of capturing the essence of the landscapes with which he engages.
With subject locations as diverse as Fowlers Gap Broken Hill, Dog Fence near Tibooburra, Darling River Western NSW, Bay of Fires Tasmania, Royal National Park and Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Sharp hones in on the textures, objects and colours that make give these places unique character, and explores the very notion of landscape.
Peter Sharp is also Senior Lecturer, UNSW Art and Design and is represented in Sydney by Liverpool Street Gallery.
