David Hayes

Peter Hudson paintings

'The Passage' 

Peter Hudson
196 x 97cm | oil on board 
2019 Tattersall's Club Landscape Art Prize Finalist

Queensland artist Peter Hudson draws largely on contemporary Australian history for inspiration in his art making. He travels around Australia painting en plein air to capture the spirit or essence of place.

He 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 walkoff.

As such his 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.
