In ‘Brett and Arthur’, Peter Kingston pays tribute to his artist friends Brett Whiteley (with whom he created a body of Sydney Harbours works) and Arthur Boyd. This work is a drypoint etching – the printmaking medium that most resembles directness of ink to paper.

The spontaneity afforded by etching reverberates in the subject of ‘Brett and Arthur’. Captured in a fleeting moment, perhaps while the three artists sat together etching, this work is a vestige of friendship, felt not thought. At the end of the night, Boyd probably retreated to his camper van to draw a few etching plates for biting the next morning, leaving Whiteley and Kingston to talk the darkness away.

Artists depicting artists is an important theme in art history. It speaks to collegiality of creating; to how creativity is shared, like the warmth of a fire, between friends. ‘Brett and Arthur’ is a museum quality testament to this, with an edition represented at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

A respected Australian artist, Kingston records his life through art. He is represented in numerous private and public collections including the Art Gallery of New South Wales and in 2004, was the subject of a monograph entitled Harbour Lights: the art of Peter Kingston. Emotive and charming, ‘Brett and Arthur’ celebrates friendship, artistic exchange and the act of creating. Collect it before it’s snapped up.
