Peter Gardiner is renowned for his outstanding oil paintings drawn from his personal experiences of the Australian landscape. “I lean into the landscape, between light and dark…interior and exterior. Sometimes it’s so vast it feels like I’m floating in it. I look back and make sense of what I see in front of me. It’s my language and I’m making it up every day.”

He has been the recipient of the Kilgour Prize in 2016, the Calleen Art Prize in 2011, the Muswellbrook Art Prize in 2009 and the Maitland Art Prize in 2003. His work is held in important public collections including the Newcastle Regional Gallery, University of Technology Sydney, Deakin University, the Muswellbrook Regional Gallery, Gippsland Regional Gallery Macquarie Bank Collection and Art Bank
