"Anybody who has tried to paint a landscape on site will quickly become aware that everything around them is changing as they work. Breezes come and go, tides ebb and flow, the position and energy of the sun can be felt and all of that is slowly but surely changing the landscape itself. This, and the ongoing beauty of the natural world is what I’m trying to show in my studio and plein air paintings" – Rhett Brewer 2017
"Being at home in the landscape is a painter's solace, and painters have long felt the need to observe and re-create the natural world. The big skies and rolling vistas of the Monaro and Limestone Plains are the landscapes that give me that sense of belonging. I began most of the paintings en plein air followed by work in the studio in which memory, depiction and interpretation were shaped together" – Kerry Johns 2017
