Peter's recent trip to Heathcote’s Pink Cliffs in Central Victoria was the inspiration for this exhibition. The paintings highlight his dedication to rendering the landscape with exquisite evocation. His subtle and arresting works on canvas demonstrate a complex, intriguing expression of Minimalism. Pink Cliffs is so named because of the pinkish hued rock formations left behind from sluice mining during the gold rush era. The rock, which is actually powdery clay, changes colour depending on the time

Peter has recently exhibited with Tacit galleries and was included in the very successful exhibition about the history of colour by David Coles, Chromatopia. (2017) He has been a regular exhibitor at Five Walls since 2015 and before he left Melbourne for Shanghai to live for four years (2012-2016), he helped curate a group show called ‘Un:sighted’ at Fortyfive downstairs gallery, Melbourne. Peter Summers was selected for the 2011 Yering station sculpture prize and has been awarded the Ella Donald Memorial scholarship.
