Peter Kingston’s ‘Wunderkabinett’

Currently running at the S.H. Ervin Gallery in Sydney, Australia is an exhibition titled ‘First Light: The Art of Peter Kingston’.

The exhibition features work by renowned Australian artist, Peter Kingston.

Amongst more traditional art we would expect to see at an art gallery (paintings, sketches, sculptures, prints, etc.), we also see a cabinet titled ‘Wunderkabinett‘. The S.H. Ervin Gallery describe this cabinet as containing Peter Kingston’s “nostalgic relics of his earlier incarnation as pop-illustrator-satirist“.

Within the cabinet on public display, we see several Phantom pieces which toured Australia as part of the Phantom Art Show several years ago (from 2015 to 2018).

Peter Kingston’s work will be on exhibition at the S.H. Ervin Gallery from the 5th of December 2020, until the 14th of February 2021.

The Sydney Moring Herald featured this exhibition in their newspaper on the 11th of December 2020, providing further information on Peter Kingston and his work within the Australian art community. You can read the full article HERE
