'Note to God' | Peter Hudson

Maleny based artist Peter Hudson draws largely on contemporary Australian history for inspiration in his art making. 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 been particularly influenced by a keen interest in Aboriginal Australian post colonisation. He has spent much time in the North Tanami desert in Gurindji country after becoming intrigued with the Wave Hill walk off.

As such Peter Hudson’s paintings and drawings have a deep connection to country and the natural world. Science, mythology, evolution and magic all blend to create a subject matter particular to him.

Peter Hudson exhibits regularly, has won a number of regional art prizes. His portrait of Paul Kelly was a finalist in the 2007 Archibald Prize. He is represented in the collections of the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, National Portrait Gallery and Parliament House in Brisbane.
