Realistic painting with a slight touch of surrealism is Michael Pecks preferred form of artistic expression, with children being the Australian painter’s inexhaustible source of inspiration.
His last exhibition, called “The Landing” exposes all the horrors of the 2nd world war through the eyes of a child. Its main theme was the relationship between Michael and his grandfathers, both of whom fought in the war.
His work focuses on exploring the questions of loss of identity and the intergenerational conflict between smaller groups of individuals, who remained on the margins of society.
A truly remarkable series!
