Working from his studio in York, abstract expressionist artist Peter Park creates paintings that capture the land and seascapes that surround him in unique and exciting ways.
Park’s process involves using acrylic paint on canvas to build layers of colour and texture often inspired by an area he has visited and studied.
Paint is applied in layers and sometimes scratched back to reveal the colour beneath to create texture. The structure of the painting and composition are very important. A palette knife is used to inscribe lines onto the surface which may lead the eye through the image. Park likens his work to a conversation, between himself, (the artist), the subject, and the surface of the canvas. The conversation is the process from which the image is created.
