Peter’s contribution to this exhibition is a series of paintings inspired by linear features of the Uist landscape:
“The paintings are my response to the sense of flatness in the machair edges: from the weight of long horizons and tall skies. Of moveable edges, such as waves and tidelines. And the indistinctness of rain and wind …The paintings use flattened perspective and a deliberate unfocusing of edges. Multiple horizon lines are stacked vertically, sometimes creating a series of micro-landscapes within the overall image, So there’s elements of both the repetition and the differences you find in living within one place over the seasons”
Peter lives on the edge of the North Uist and is a graduate of the Lews Castle College BA Fine Art programme which is taught at Taigh Chearsabhagh.
