Title Karinjini Hillside
Artist Peter Moir is the artist on
display at Wills Domain in January.
He is inspired by the ever-changing
beachscapes and forests surrounding his
Margaret River home, and the vibrant
colours and rugged beauty of Karinjini,
the P ilbara and our North-West.
The artwork Karinjini Hillside is a result
of Peter’s regular camping trips to the
North-West, depicting the vibrant
colours, haunting presence and ancient
textures of the area. Peter also produces
intriguing beach and dune paintings,
capturing the light, shade and wind which
sculpt and form the bright and spare
dunes and shore. It is important to Peter
to accurately depict the living ecology of
the beach, which is dynamic and fragile.

The artwork Aura is an interpretation of
the beautiful location, Elephant Rocks
at William Bay. There is a metaphysical
atmosphere created by the evening
light falling on these ancient monoliths,
which is also reflected in the pristine
clarity of the ocean shallows. This
collection of work focuses on both tree
and seascapes that demonstrate the
artist’s adept technique of capturing
light in nature.
