Artist Statement

The time Peter spent living near the beach influenced his subtle palette of cool blues and greens, warm golds and rich reds, hues that are complicated by the atmospheric clarity he finds in the arid southwest. His excellent training as an illustrator is evident in the dimensional sophistication of his paintings. He approaches each canvas with a keen technical acuity while simultaneously yielding to the spontaneous development of the work. Peter’s strong foundation in drawing also affords him the luxury of retaining a formality of line while articulating a broad range of expression in his paintings. His attention to detail is a primary concern. He hand finishes each canvas, resolving every painting to a very particular level of complexity.
