Peter’s powerful and evocative paintings present a world filled with reflections and shadows.
His distinctive style brings to life cities ranging from New York to Newcastle with a population of rain-swept, umbrella toting figures hurrying along slick pavements which reflect the lights of the city back out of the canvas. Water also features in his other work most notably his paintings of transatlantic liners which are inspired by memories of childhood visits to Newcastle Quayside with his father.
Peter has been influenced by the watercolours of John Singer Sargent and Croatian artist Joseph Zbukvic. “Water colour is my favourite medium, although perhaps unusually, I prefer to use strong, bold colours. I find it a more exciting and less predictable medium than others. It lends itself to the subjects I paint with its fluidity and transparent qualities making it ideal for rainy streets and damp reflections. Atmosphere is hugely important to me and water colours allow me to create the mood I’m looking for.”
Peter lives and paints in his studio in Newcastle. From a series of sell-out solo exhibitions in the north of England he has moved on to success in London and beyond. His work now hangs in Europe, Canada and the USA.
“Although rainy days and umbrellas maybe slightly dour I always try to keep a feeling of warmth and light in my pictures… perhaps it’s my northern optimism.”
