Peter Boggs

Australian artist (b. 1949)

Typical of artist Peter Boggs, the print, View to Babel Garden, has a formal sense of geometry, precise composition and unique tonal quality.

In this print the deceptively simple scenery captures the emptiness and vacant eeriness often experienced in landscape. A total absence of human figures adds an ethereal quality to these austere scenes. Our attention is drawn to the precise structural composition, carefully observed shadow and pale light, captured brilliantly in this almost monochromatic colloblock print.
