Peninsula Light

Philip Beadle

27 March – 27 April 2021


”To the south east, Christchurch has two extinct volcanoes (though they wobble occasionally ) which are broken up with bays, harbours, pockets of bush and farmland which has a sparse road network and a strong sense of isolation in parts. A fantastic area of exploration and a playground which I enjoy and paint, sometimes from afar and sometimes from within. I particularly enjoy painting the dry summer tussock colours against the blues and greens of the sea water and the low sun sparking off the water which deliver contrast and warm vibrant colours.

I hope some of these paintings remind you of some adventure you have had on Banks Peninsula, the smells and tranquillity when you can sit for a moment to rest and enjoy the view.”
