Video interview with painter Peter Sharp about his work and process, posted on the occasion of the exhibition Peter Sharp: Will To Form at the Hazelhurst Regional Gallery, Sydney, Australia.

Sharp says: "The work will end up as an abstraction of something, but everything comes from the drawing... The work that I make has to do with the experience of place. I surf and I fish. And me being interested in nature and how it fits together and its machinations, is probably a product of me growing up in this area."
