Peri, Peter
Peter Peri's work primarily focuses on two ways of working: intricately detailed, time intensive drawings and densely worked and reworked black, geometric paintings. In his drawings, Peri examines the minute details of forms, and translates them, using obsessive graphite lines, into highly detailed drawings. Precise shading gives the shapes body and depth, actualising his subjects. Peri's emphasis on draftsmanship is also evident in his abstract paintings. His canvases are divided into geometric sections with coloured lines, bolts and spheres escaping through the black and silver surfaces, creating distorted mappings of unknown surroundings.
