Gift of the artist, 2011

Renowned Australian landscape painter, Peter Kingston, received a Bachelor of Arts from the

University of New South Wales in 1965 and tutored in architecture at the University of Sydney. He

has held over 35 solo exhibitions since 1978 as far afield as New York, London and Los Angeles.

Kingston conveys with great reverence life on and around the water and has been known to have

a ‘soft spot’ for the curlews of the north. Flood warden is a nod to this ungainly bird and its habit

of calling when weather conditions are changing, especially when rain is approaching an area.

Like many southern Australian painters, Kingston was drawn to Far North Queensland, capturing

many scenes of landscapes, life and iconic buildings of Cairns and Kuranda. Kingston was also a

staunch supporter of the ‘Save Hinchinbrook’ campaign of 2005. Creating works and organising

auctions “to protect and conserve World Heritage-listed Hinchinbrook Island and Channel from

the impacts of coastal development”.

 

High quality reproduction of an original painting held in the Cairns Art Gallery Collection.
