A Tribute to Three Arthurs
An exhibition about balance and influence in the paintings, prints and installations by Peter Day
“Painters are not neccessarily in revolt against the methods of previous masters, as critics would have us believe; the differences are often a shift of emphasis.”
John Olsen; Drawing from Life, 1997
It is not unusual to find developments and new directions in artist’s work coinciding with changes in the fabric and experience of their personal and professional life and this has undoubtedly been the case with Day’s latest body of work. A Long Stick has developed from two previous exhibitions by Peter Day shown earlier this year at BDAS Gallery, Bowral and the Project Centre for Contemporary Art in Wollongong.
