I am Geof Pearce – I lived most of my life in Adelaide and now live in Melbourne. My paintings have been influenced by the landscapes of the Fleurieu Peninsula, the Mornington Peninsula and outback Australia.

My works reflect a deep passion for the alluring light of Australian landscapes.

The consequence of the light on the stunning landscapes of Australia always fascinates me, but always with a strong desire to express this passion in my painting as an enduring connection with this wonderful land.

However, those who engage in observing my paintings will probably depart from where my paintings are observed or where they are exhibited…each I trust, with something quite different. Nonetheless there should be no doubt about my passion for this captivating and mesmerising country.

The beauty and wealth of colour, tone and line, the choice of aspect and view, the intensity of light and shadow, the exquisiteness of the time of day….all have led me to be fascinated with what observers may or may not see…clearly always different, but I am sure each painting will cause a unique response.

I approach my painting as an ‘exciting act of discovery’. For me it becomes a physical journey through each landscape with the brushes, resulting in paintings that I believe reflect the pleasure I gain from the paint and the impact of the brush on the canvas.

The thorough enjoyment I have experienced as I paint our ever-changing and mesmerising landscapes is one that I would like those who choose to observe my work to also enjoy.
