PETER OWEN GOODALE
Is it possible for the colours of the soul to be seen in paint applied to canvas? Is it possible to feel the trade winds off the ocean or smell the fragrance of a tropical night all from viewing a painting? The art of Peter Owen Goodale sparks these sensations and emotions in people when they view his captivating work. Peter is an artist who paints with vibrant colours that carry you to these distant shores of mood-drenched images or “places without postcards” – serene moonlit islands where rolling waves break like liquid dreams in a barefoot paradise.
“While living and surfing in Hawaii there was such a huge pull for me to express what I was feeling and seeing. The mountains, clouds, ocean, reefs, the marine life and the collective thread of energy between them all, inspired me to paint what I saw and how I saw it. My feelings and emotions are expressed through the colours I use. Bright, glowing, electric blues, purples, brilliant sunset oranges and inky black, starry skies. Combining the rich colour palet of my realism works with the natural fluid movements of my acrylic pours captures the power, beauty and freedom of nature.
I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy creating them. When I paint I drift away, everything recedes to the background and I am right there on that empty beach, that perfect left hand point break, on my journey with the trade winds blowing and the sun on my face.”
