His friend and master artist had this to say about Herman.” There is no-one in the world that can put a painting together and make them work the way he can; his design is impeccable.” – Joseph Zbukvic on Herman Pekel.
High praise indeed!
Pekel’s charisma, energy and infectious sense of humour are palpable in his works. It should come as no surprise that at age 17, receiving his first significant art prize, Pekel rocked up on stage wearing his school uniform.
Pekel is a true designer of paintings. His works are refined and detailed, placing him among the best Australian contemporary Impressionists of his time.
We invite you to check out his paintings of Queensland on our website redhillgalley.com.au or in the gallery Monday to Friday 10am-4pm 61 Musgrave Road Red Hill Brisbane
It is easy to see why Pekel is described as creatively fearless. His mastery of capturing the spontaneous effects of light and atmosphere is apparent in the quick, broad strokes of his oil paintings showing now at Brisbane’s Red Hill Gallery for “The Sunshine State” exhibition. Pekel effortlessly combines his knowledge of artistic tradition and quality with an intimate appreciation of the unique light of the land down under.
