12 Apr Herman Pekel – Bush
Lost Bear Gallery presents a wondrous new exhibition by Herman Pekel, featuring 20 new paintings of the Australian bush.
Melbourne-based Pekel has been painting professionally for over 40 years and although he is particularly well known for his urban and city scenes, he is also renowned for his sensitive portrayals of the Australian landscape. Pekel’s ability with light and tone result in works of art that have the magnetism and glow of those that only exist in our happiest memories. His paintings are characterized by their dynamism and atmospheric quality and this is especially evident in this collection of new work. These timeless, landscape paintings echo the traditions of Australian impressionist landscape painting and capture the unique beauty of the Australian bush.
