ISAAC PETERSEN

Isaac Petersen – 33 – New Zealand

Born and bred on the coastal shores of New Plymouth’s rugged West Coast, Isaac developed his passion for the sea and surfing at an early age. This passion contributes to the lively style of his contemporary oil paintings. Shimmering aquamarine, gold and silver dance, contrasting with rich charcoal and taupe, dominating Petersen’s delightfully rendered local landscapes, imbuing the light catching the waves of New Plymouth’s beautiful sea with personal feeling. Here and there latent clusters of geomorphic rock dot the beach amidst ribbons of azure and the quixotic glimmer of lazy sea foam. A dedicated photorealist, Petersen’s extended oeuvre reflects the diverse territories he encounters while travelling abroad. Like his landscapes, his forays into more figurative subjects, pools, and urban territory possess the same care and clean, creamy lines.

His work entitled "Hobart " was shortlisted for the Brisbane art prize in 2017 . He is currently residing in Byron Bay in Northern
New South Wales
