• Peter Hackett

Parnell Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Peter Hackett.

Working in thick impasto oils, contemporary painter Peter Hackett creates captivating and immersive landscapes, presenting to the viewer’s eye his sublime vision of nature’s incomparable beauty.

Flowers have long held the role of muse, their aesthetic, olfactory, and tactile qualities inspiring artists throughout history. Hackett invests in this tradition while engaging with a contemporary framework; observing and presenting flora in a magnetic commingling of abstract and figurative representation that invokes an intoxicating and enchanting sense of passion, scent, texture, colour, and presence.

In this latest body of work, Hackett continues to be inspired by the swathes of colour that fill the fields and frame bodies of water during spring and summer, his alluring paintings reflecting and embodying the headiness of the season’s imminent arrival.
