Launch 7pm, Thursday 17th April Online Only Virtual Exhibition in association with Exhibbit
‘The art that Charley Peters makes is exquisitely sensual, although somewhat otherworldly’ – Robert Clark, The Guardian.
Peters’ work destabilises boundaries between what we see and what we know. Her enigmatic visual constructions operate in a liminal space in-between structure and abstraction, the material and that which lies beyond it.
Operating within the expanded field of drawing Peters utilises her own unique working process as a vehicle to evoke active engagement within the viewer. The artist’s work is simultaneously direct and open-ended. Peters builds up layers of intense tone resulting in works that respond to material and spatial conditions. An ambivalent series of dialogues are acted out on the work’s surface; tensions between the light and dark, the definite and indefinite, the industrial and the organic. In Peters’ work, geometric lines and the spatial fields that they define exist in a continuous state of flux.
