Accidental Tourist, Peter Sharp

Exhibition and Shows

5 Feb 2022 to 26 Mar 2022 Once Only Event

Prominent Sydney artist Peter Sharp presents forty ‘plein air’ paintings selected from his practice over the past thirty years. These works reflect the artist’s travels around regional and remote Australia and have become part of his ‘toolkit’ for larger abstract works. In situ photographs of the painted view 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 Senior Lecturer, Art and Design, UNSW Sydney and is represented by Liverpool Street Gallery. This exhibition is a Manly Art Gallery and Museum touring exhibition.
