A flock of new paintings have arrived by Peter Wyse. Uplifting and unapologetically happy these new paintings are just the tonic required for summer!
Peter was introduced to art at an early age through his grandfather, R.E. Walker, who schooled his grandson in the practice of painting and the discipline required by an artist. Peter Wyse’s eclectic art interests range from Matisse and Rothko to the murals of Mesoamerica. These influences are evident within his spatial relationships and with his lively use of colour and line. While Peter has worked with a range of mediums, he now paints exclusively with acrylics.
I am a chaser of happiness and a pusher of paint and I enjoy the complexity of keeping it simple.
Gabryel Harrison's new paintings offer an harmonious and meditative break from the chaos and uncertainty of the modern world. In both her studio practice and her poetry, Gabryel invites the viewer to slow down, to perceive art as an object of contemplation or evidence of wonder. It is her belief that this simple engagement can be a radical act.
