Land and Sea by David Beaumont

David Beaumont’s latest exhibition, opening at Salt Contemporary in Queenscliff, on Easter Saturday 30 March 2013 3pm, features paintings expressing his unique interpretation of the Bellarine Peninsula, alongside works inspired by his recent trip to the Flinders Ranges where he set out to explore the landscape on his beloved 1970s dragstar pushbike.

Continuing his exploration of spatial relationships and palette, be they of ocean or land, David’s multi layered, textural oil paintings draw the viewer into the environment he seeks to interpret. Capturing a unique sense of place in which seemingly random forms, patterns and marks are left open to interpretation, David masterfully creates a unique visual language.

Whilst it has been more than 2 years since artist David Beaumont has held a solo exhibition at Salt Contemporary, he has by no means been idle. In addition to completing a Masters (Visual Arts) at the Victorian College of the Arts, David has held numerous exhibitions including those at the Geelong Gallery and Melbourne’s Blindside gallery, and he has also embarked on a number of art research trips.
