Brett Ferry’s paintings challenge the tradition of landscape, teasing at viewers’ perceptions and stimulating the imagination. His bold use of colour, blend, and unique style are both confronting and beautiful. His most recent work explores the ‘post-digital landscape’ derived from observation, photography and digital manipulation.
Using a variety of techniques, Ferry places high importance on traditional acts of drawing, printmaking and painting. He states, “for me, these techniques provide a response to time and thought, and a discourse within art history. This enables me to build conceptual layers of ideas and meanings, within each piece of work.”
Brett Ferry has completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Printmaking) at Victorian College of the Arts, and a Diploma of Education at The University of Melbourne. He is currently working within education, and living and exhibiting in galleries around Melbourne.
