Born in England, Peter completed his Bachelors at Bath School of Art and Design and his masters at Bristol University. Peter has been represented by West Contemporary (London) and David Simon Contemporary (Bath) and has had many exhibitions in London and Bath, as well as exhibiting at art fairs in Germany and Miami.
Peter’s paintings explore themes of emotive human response, experience and human interaction through the basic aesthetics of abstract painting. These narratives and ideas are expressed through the composition of non-literal shapes and a fluid application that carries risk, immediacy and a mature balance that has captured the eye of international collectors and galleries. Working predominately in oils on canvas, Peter uses the richness of oil pigment to create a depth in the surface of his work that invites the viewer in and allows the painting to display many layers. Peter’s work is created over a journey of construction and deconstruction in the studio. Always pushing his practice to new discoveries, the feeling of risk and reward is evident in his work which in turn produces truly unique results.
Having moved to Australia in January 2017, Peter is now currently based in The Gold Coast.
