The art Nigel Peake combines a love of the ordinary and the everyday with his skill in drawing. His attention to detail means we can appreciate his eye and what he sees, how he sees.
While, in a way, quirky – take some time to look and you find intricate patterns and lines. Take some more time and try it for yourself, you realise the level of skill and type of artist that he is. Find some paper, some fine markers and see for yourself. It’s therapeutic and considered but the rewards as you will see are most definitely worthwhile.
The subtle colours of Autumn, the geometric and organic play of shape and line provides the context for the latest work.
The questioning of still-life vs abstraction..can it be both? How is each term defined and which “sits” more comfortably with the audience.
The above artwork was completed on the iPadPro using the Paper53 app and the Apple Pencil. It is hard to describe the techniques and effects available through the pencil. Making it work for me as an artist has been a 6 month time of experimentation and constant recharging. As with any media, making it work for you is the ultimate challenge. I feel its working.
