Pete is a 2nd generation Irish contemporary artist working in Aberystwyth, Wales and in southern Germany.
"My work is in response to place. I am drawn to the celtic fringes of the UK and Ireland along with the higher slopes of the Alps. I depict vernacular architecture; buildings that have "grown" out of the landscape, where local materials were used in construction and function took precedent over aesthetics."
Working in acrylics on wood panel he also deploys crayons, markers, collage and spray paint. Portions of each painting are usually retained as drawn elements reflecting the fragility and temporality of the structures. His work is part representation, part visceral interpretation.
He has an MA Fine Art from Aberystwyth University.
