The Australian Coastal landscape has woven itself into my being from an early age. Estuaries, rivers and the sea. Sea eagles soaring updrafts on headlands. Night fishing. Sharks and southerlies. Weatherboards and fibro. Banksias, pines and eucalypts. The din of cicadas. Storm swells and whitecaps. Peter Stevens, 2018. Peter Stevens’ deep connection to the ocean and its rich surrounding environment echoes poignantly throughout his latest exhibition, Tidal. In his highly distinctive and engaging pictorial style, Stevens depicts the mesmerising beauty and meditative stillness of life on and around the water.
