Studio 281


Solo Exhibition - Peter Usher

Opening - Saturday, 1st of Sept, 2018  (18:00)

1st of Sept - 20th of Sep


"Join prolific WA artist Peter Usher as he celebrates his latest solo exhibition with us at our newly-launched gallery- the WhiteSpace, in Fremantle.

Known for capturing iconic landscapes in WA , Usher breathes life into his art through his creative use of paint and mediums.  With a passion and love for nature, Usher's art practice involves a delicate treatment of light and colour, playing with subtle shifts in hues that result in vivid, yet calm and luminous  landscapes. 

Complimenting his refined brushwork, Usher often incorporates a sculptural aesthetic to his paint; the works can exude a palpable atmosphere that draws and holds the viewer with strength and depth.

With paintings that are visually beautiful and conceptually strong, Usher's artworks are a dialogue addressing his ongoing and deepening relationship to the natural environment within which he lives and works.

As one of WA's most established artists, Usher's art is at home in many prestigious collections around the world.

The exhibition will be Usher's first mid career retrospective and not only display a large body of new work, but an array of key paintings drawn from his formative artistic periods. Many of those works have never been previously exhibited.

This milestone event is Usher's 10th solo show within a decade and commemorates Studio 281's own growth and success in the Whitespace. We will be delighted to have you join us.
