Australian, b. 1947

Peter Coad’s landscapes of the Australian outback, which he paints en plein air, tenuously move between abstraction and representation, embellishing and expressing the natural beauty of the places he depicts. Coad travels throughout the country to observe Australia’s culture and wilderness. “Cultures have been an experience and an inspiration for me as a painter. I combine a cultural influence in most of my paintings, and a spiritual connection between both is formed,” he says. The vivid Australian wilderness, with its myriad colors and curious flora and fauna, provides rich and varied inspiration for his work. For example, Coad’s use of color in Lagoon – Flight 1 Series (2013–14) is emblematic of his approach. In it, a purplish-blue is set against a contrasting red and orange; this interplay of hues abstracts the landscape, enhancing its expressive formal properties while faithfully depicting its features.
