Entering Peter Barker’s world of art is an invitation into a Pandora’s box of experiences, memory, imagination and real life. He blends atmospheric effects to express his thoughts which encompass narrative, history and humanism – a kind of shorthand of how he views the world he inhabits. Spanning the genres of landscape, still life and portraiture, Peter’s paintings take you on a deeper experience, a porthole into a different reality. Peter was formally trained in Florence, Italy and he currently resides and works in Fremantle, Western Australia.
