PETER DAVERINGTON

PETER DAVERINGTON is a Finalist in the 2016 John Leslie Art Prize at the Gippsland Art Gallery. According to Curator Simon Greeg, his shortlisted work, The Floating Terraces of Philistinia, "continues the plot to derail common sense. We discover a monochrome world densely populated with floating checkerboard planes, connected by hovering steps. Such fractured, 'world' landscapes were popularised by Dutch artists in the sixteenth century, and while Daverington similarly employs multiple narratives through a steeply raked panorama, he does so only to hold a mirror to the absurdity of our 'real' world."
