Pete began painting and printmaking again in September 2009 following the discovery that an old friend and artist, Garry, had died. Feeling compelled to produce his own work again for the first time in nearly twenty years, Pete is exhibiting and selling once again.
Pete attempts to produce, not just a facsimile of what he sees, but something that expresses what he and (hopefully) his audience feels.
He feels his work is perceptual rather than conceptual, emotional rather than intellectual and he prefers expression over realism, subtlety over sensationalism, substance over novelty and intuition over reason.
Pete’s work is held in private collections in the U.K., Canada and Australia.
