For the past decade, Adam Pyett has been fascinated with still-life painting. Focused on paint and image-making, Pyett intentionally restricts his subject matter to the still-life and landscapes, in order to intensely explore light, form and brushwork and the right combinations of colour. Pyett brings a freshness to painting, one that encourages close contemplation of his evocative works. Featuring sprigs of native Australian flowers such as gums, wattles and bottlebrushes in deliberately narrow tonal ranges, Pyett’s paintings are magnetic, not only capturing but also embodying their subjects.
Adam Pyett graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Painting) from the Victorian College of the Arts. His work is held in public and private collections throughout Australia, including in the collections of the National Gallery of Victoria, Artbank, Monash University Museum of Art, McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park and the Macquarie Bank Collection.
