Peter Hudson

Peter Hudson is an artist whose work is inspired by the stories, events and people who have shaped contemporary Australian history. He was the initiator of the East Coast Encounter concept and has been a passionate advocate for the project. His work is about the land and he believes that Aboriginal Australia has given him a new pair of eyes to view and better understand the Australian landscape. He has made many painting trips to Indigenous communities, particularly Gurindji country and his solo exhibitions include Wave Hill Walk-off, addressing Aboriginal land rights. Hudson’s work is held in major collections including the National Portrait Gallery and the Museums and Art Galleries of the Northern Territory.
