Gary Peters makes non-objective wall drawings and painting objects. These are created in response to the surrounding environment through noticing architectural details in the studio or gallery space which are then brought into his work.
Unafraid of colour, he creates unexpected combinations and relationships in his work using colour to effectively seduce and repel the viewer. Taking colour from the locale the work find it’s place in the environment; when “alien colour” is introduced, often at random, it causes a frisson.
Rules, systems and process add another dimension to the work. Setting up decisions and choices prior to making potentially remove the artist from the work yet, thanks to his love of making things, Peters’ works are defiantly hand made and dependent on the artist’s presence.
