First Light: the art of Peter Kingston

‘I have spent countless nights watching the moon reflect upon the water, and the shadow of this great building creating colours and unique impressions each passing day.’
– Peter Kingston.

This major survey exhibition of works by Peter Kingston focuses on his passion for Sydney Harbour, its character and energy driven by human and ferry activity, punctuated by iconic landmarks. Curated by Barry Pearce, ‘First Light’ comprises key paintings and drawings from the early 90s onwards, as well as Kingston’s books, prints, memorabilia and items of nostalgia.
