Peter Augustin: Couleur vivante (Living Colour)

1 Dec 2017 – 28 Jan 2018

Peter Augustin is a figurative painter working with oil, acrylic, watercolour and mixed media in a lyrical abstract style. His paintings reflect the passion and excitement he feels when inspired by the beauty of the human form. His post-impressionist portraits are refreshingly fluid, heavily symbolic and laden with colour and emotion.
