Lifelike Paintings by Michael Peck

Australian painter Michael Peck uses oil to create some truly beautiful works of art that feel almost like snapshots from distant memories.

Peck says of his work:
“Themes of isolation and displacement have continually reoccurred in my paintings over time. I’m always seeking to create a tension in the work; the suspense in the feeling that something is just about to happen, as if the landscape could suddenly swallow everything and everyone up. I think art is a good place to be able to engage with our anxieties.”
