I first saw a glimpse of Michael Peck’s work during Sunday Arts on ABC1 last Sunday, May 31. The screen was filled with the high key, image that held so much strength.

This is exactly the kind of images I like, a touch of the surreal but also very normal in a apocalyptic kind of way.

Peck’s paintings both seem to draw me in yet also push me away, The nostalgic style with the “brave new world” scenes are so well suited to the rich tones. The photo realistic style only adds contradiction where we can’t quite trust what we see.

“Are they photographs or are they paintingsĀ  ..”

Peck’s eye seems critical of the world, where a stark urban stage plays host to the innocent actors. The figures show a strength of character that pulls them out of the ordinary, they seem to be part of their world but also critical.

The birds seem wild, perhaps they are the artist watching and scared, or perhaps they are tired and wanting.

Michael Peck is exhibiting at the Metro Gallery in Armadale Victoria until June 7.
