And it is evident in his new exhibition, Went to Sea, which breaks new ground by exploring the stunning beauty of the owl through exquisite sculptures and by examining relationships through his drawing and painting.

It is his second exhibition in a series of works and is inspired by Edward Lear�s poem The Owl and the Pussycat.

�The first line of the poem, �The owl and the pussycat went to sea�, is really just a metaphor that I use to examine the deeper issues of love, relationships, commitment and trust,� he said.

�The poem has given me a wonderful platform to explore ideas. Just as importantly, it has opened up a whole new world for me with my art.�

Went to Sea is open at Buratti Fine Art until the end of May. Robert Buratti said Kendall had created a body of work unlike anything else in the contemporary art scene in Australia.

�Peter is already well-known as one of WA�s premier artists and his profile as a two-time Archibald finalist has given him a national audience,� he said.

�The response to this work from collectors has already been phenomenal and I am expecting it will extend around the country and beyond.

�Audiences will see that this second exhibition in Peter�s series has been worth waiting for.�
