Philippe Le Miere’s digitally rendered landscapes were born as free-form sketches, drawn on the computer. They then grew into 3D computer generated models, virtual worlds Le Miere could roam, finding the perspective which would form his work of art.

‘The good life’ is not a real place – coordinates you can swivel but can’t locate. It may be informed by the surroundings of Mornington Peninsula where the artist grew up, as well as the history of landscape painting, the genre upon which Australian art was established. Early landscape art in Australia was often devoid of people, idealisations of places that evoked a mood, idea or aspiration.

In ‘The good life’, the sea meets land. Its title reflects the feeling Le Miere had when summoning the image from his imagination – a tone that, like a dream, shifts between strange and immediate, desirable and unknown. For collectors of contemporary landscapes and new media art, ‘The good life’ offers a new perspective.
