Rick Matear currently lives and works in Melbourne. His work reflects his strong connection to the Mornington Peninsula with many of his paintings showcasing the beauty of the beach and our physical and emotional relationship to it. Matear captures the feeling of water, sand and skies in their various moods and changing light, his process of layering oil paint reflects the natural environment of distinct elements working together to form a magnificent whole.

Painter Judy Matear, Rick’s mother, also has a strong connection to the natural world and in particular to the beach. Judy’s works depict glistening water bathed in sunlight, dramatic cliff faces and expansive skies. Her works are calm, sensitive and vibrant celebrations of life on the water.

Rick Matear’s exhibition ‘Water on the other side’ and Judy Matear’s exhibition ‘Water’ will run concurrently at Australian Galleries, the interplay between artists and subject matter presenting a dynamic installation of two distinct yet harmonious artistic voices.
