Robert Perriam

“I do not follow any artistic style or seek to imitate the work of any particular artist. I seek only to depict in a natural way the often harsh beauty and lighting of the landscapes of Australia.”

“My preference is for pristine landscapes, trees, and wildflowers, untouched by the hand of man. All of my work is digital, with older photographs digitized from film. Images are presented in a range of artistic effects; an oil/acrylic brushwork effect, a watercolor sketch effect, respecting the detail of the scene, and a streaked aura effect, which some may regard as an aura of the earth. Some are presented as photographic images, where that seems most appropriate.”
