Peter’s painting reveals or describes perpetual change in order to capture or embody the passing nature of experience. His practice focuses on both the production and installation of painting as a method to present ideas relating to social experience. This focus often reflects on our social experience as forming within an unending passivity, shaped through continuous viewing and consumption.
Peter has been included in group, and individual exhibitions in public and commercial galleries in Australia and overseas. He has curated two to three annual exhibition projects for the past 20 years in Australia, and periodically overseas. Peter is a Senior Academic at RMIT University in Melbourne.
