'Beneath The Sunshine' Exhibition by Isaac Petersen
19th May - 12th June, 2022
'My work is a culmination of stories from my life, my home, and the places I have been. Since I can remember the ocean and rugged landscape of where I grew up in New Zealand have inspired me to paint landscapes and the sea. These paintings kick-started my career as an artist in my early twenties.'
'Since travel being a part of my adult life, my paintings expanded to capture the ‘story” of places abroad in the last few years. I began painting my wife, Erika, as a figure to add depth and connection to a beautiful surrounding, often water.'
These paintings depict places and scenes which evoke positive feelings and radiate beauty. Serene utopias in which the viewer can become immersed.
