Mitchell Fine Art presents a suite of recent artworks by Sunshine Coast based artist Peter Hudson.
Painted over the past 18 months, this selection of paintings are an illustration of where Peter Hudson's practice has led him during this time of isolation.
Peter Hudson draws largely on contemporary Australian history for inspiration in his art making. Far from suffering from extended periods of enforced solitude, Hudson has relished the opportunity to seriously consider his work.
“I’m loving the time to really concentrate on my work and to just do paintings that really matter”says Hudson.
For Hudson, regular painting trips and sketching ‘en-plein air’ form an integral part of his art-making process in capturing the the spirit or essence of the landscape.
Peter Hudson has a survey show at the University of Sunshine Coast Queensland from August – November 2022 and an upcoming solo exhibition at Mitchell Fine Art in September 2022.
He is also a finalist in the 2021 Sunshine Coast Art Prize, with the winners announced on the 23rdSeptember.
