Peter Hackett returns to Parnell Gallery in October with an exciting body of new works. Hackett is inspired by nature, in particular the meadow flowers that surround his studio in season. The work is full of intense colour and vigorously applied oil paint, which literally advances from the picture plane to dramatic visual impact.
“I am not just using oil paint to describe a meadow, I am using a meadow to describe oil paint.”
Impressionist influence can be further seen in the effect gained as we step back from the paintings. The abstract plane of paint, texture and colour magically transforms into a field of skilfully described flowers and grasses. Viewing his large vibrant canvas’ is an intoxicating experience of the senses, offered by an artist in full control of his unique technical approach and endless inspiration.
Peter Hackett studied in Europe and has won awards for his work here in New Zealand. Not to be missed, the exhibition will be on show at the Parnell Gallery until the 25th of October.
