PETER HENDRICK

My art practice has covered a wide range over the past 40 years in media and subject matter including sculpture, set design and instrument making. My current work focuses in three areas, figurative painting including portraits, landscape painting and printmaking. The figurative painting takes a critical look at the social conventions which are imposed by contemporary culture and the validity of those conventions. Portraits engage similar issues and represent a declaration of how we want to be seen by posterity. My landscape painting is almost exclusively made outdoors from life and allows me to directly engage natural phenomena including light and colour. Printmaking for me is an extension of drawing and most recently has focused on aquatint as a way to develop pen and ink and wash drawings. I enjoy the physical act of painting and drawing making marks, mixing colours and applying paint. I am also fascinated by contemporary society and how we create meaning in our lives.
