New York-based Australian artist Peter Daverington returns to Melbourne this November with an exhibition of new paintings, titled Weltlandschaft. A contemporary painter of rare technical distinction, Peter Daverington has garnered significant recognition for his unparalleled ability to mix pictorial styles and art genres. In his latest exhibition at ARC ONE Gallery, Daverington explores the landscape painting tradition of 16th century Northern Europe with a mélange of fantastical interjections. Against a backdrop of rolling valleys, cavernous skies and trees, seemingly- endless paths lead to covert horizons, rivers stream down floating geometric planes, and mountainous forms are peppered with candy-stripes, flaming tops and carnivalesque motifs.

Exhibition opens:6pm-8pm, Thursday 10 November
Exhibition closes: Saturday 3 December
Location: ARC ONE Gallery, 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne
