My summer itinerary

A selection of upcoming exhibitions by Peter Clossick PPLG.

Peter writes: ‘My subjects are ordinary people who live ordinary and complex lives. I don’t think of an idea and then execute it; my idea arrives through a proprioceptive set of questions about the relatedness to the subject – mainly through painterly gesture – which arrives through sensation, scale, rhythm and bodily process. Expression is represented by feelings rather than illustrated through a narrative storyline or facial expressions

Through my painting I like to feel my emotions, touch and experience the moment. I use tactile oil paint so that the painting falls back into the matter from which it’s made – believing in materialistic painting and dealing with the properties of pigment. Not just optical, but physical objects.’
