I am Geof Pearce.
My paintings reflect my passion for the alluring light of the Australian landscapes.
The consequence of the light on the stunning landscapes of Australia has often fascinated me, but always with a strong desire to express this passion in my painting as an enduring connection with this wonderful land.
However, those who engage in observing my paintings will probably leave from where they are exhibited…each I trust, with something quite different. Nonetheless there should be no doubt about my passion for this captivating and mesmerising country.
The beauty and wealth of colour, tone and line, the choice of aspect and view, the intensity of light and shadow, the exquisiteness of the time of day….all have led me to be fascinated with what observers may or may not see…clearly always different, but I am sure each painting will cause a unique response.
My compositions are not planned in any formal way. I paint what I see from the lens of the camera. However, I seem unable to separate the importance of composition from the importance of light and colour whilst the perceived abstract nature of some of my paintings can cause a much different response.
I prefer to approach my painting as an ‘exciting act of discovery’. For me it becomes a physical journey through each landscape with the brushes, resulting in paintings that I believe reflect the pleasure I gain from the paint and the impact of the brush on the canvas.
The thorough enjoyment I have experienced as I paint our ever-changing and mesmerising landscapes is one that I would like you to also enjoy.
