About the Artist
Peter works in oils, painting subjects include landscapes, seascapes and still life compositions.
It is in the area of still life that most of his work is focused. He has achieved a remarkable level of skill in the short time he has been painting. While he always had a great interest in art it wasn’t until 1999 that he took up art seriously. In his paintings light transforms simple objects in his still life compositions into visually exciting images full of vibrant colour combinations. He strives to capture the effects of light as it affects various surfaces. His paintings are full of visual contrasts – hard and soft edges, light and dark tones, vivid and dull colours. Striking effects are achieved by the use of a brightly lit focal point that sometimes appears to glow with a halo effect. One of his many subjects for still life painting is the well known Lynch and Bages wine. Peter first exhibited his work in 2002 and has since gone from strength. His work is now in corporate collections including Bewleys Group, Enterprise Ireland, Forfas, Aer Rianta, etc. His work is also exhibited at various art exhibitions including The Dublin Painting & Sketching Club, The Dublin Art Society, Kilkenny Arts Festival, Wexford Opera Festival, etc.
