Peter Hackett’s paintings are recognisable by their captivating use of colour and composition.

Thick impasto layers and a vivid palette evoke the natural environment. The artist is inspired by the swathes of flowers which fill the fields surrounding his Dairy Flat studio during spring and summer. A unique, almost sculptural quality is achieved in Hackett’s work: the subject has an immediacy and feels close enough to touch.

This feeling of intimacy is enhanced through viewing from a low perspective, allowing us to lose ourselves further within the joyful, visceral qualities of these intoxicating works. Unforgettable images invoke notions of passion, scent, texture, colour and the incomparable beauty of nature, celebrated in myriad combinations by this must-see artist.
