Piers Greville is a Melbourne-based artist working predominantly with the medium of painting to investigate our dwindling natural ecologies and their intersection with the human-built world. While his work aims to interrogate more than instruct, the personal and political stance of the artist are always in play. Greville combines traditions of the Sublime — where mountainous terrains are painted with arresting precision in oils and watercolour — with a contemporary outlook on the way that we segment Australian landscapes. This outlook informs his use of monochromatic colours, concrete board and a dislocated view akin to digital mapping. His compositional choice to slice up the landscape refers to the way we re-direct waterways and hem in national parks. All of this imagery is informed by Piers’ extensive walks through these parks and reserves, resulting in a landscape that is both surreal and very real in its connection to the climate crisis.
