Peter is a painter, drawer & master mark maker and ceramicist who has been making art weekly for over a decade. During this time the artist has produced a vast body of work; work that has largely never been exhibited.

Recently, Peter joined the Studio A collective, a supported studio providing professional development to artists with intellectual disability. Despite his proficiency with the style, Peter had never before worked with another abstract expressionist. So, through Studio A, Peter connected with established abstract artist Paul Williams. The intent was for Paul to ‘mentor’ Peter. However, it soon became apparent that rather than any teacher/student relationship, this was instead to be an equal exchange between two artists sharing ideas, jokes and the pure enjoyment of mark making.

Pig Dog offers an important opportunity for Peter’s work to be seen. The size of Peter’s portfolio is immense, almost overwhelming. Paul William’s curatorship provides audiences with an informed introduction to Peter’s work, a means of navigating this artist’s incredible oeuvre. Paul’s role further speaks of the specific assistance Peter requires. That is, Peter does not so much require mentorship in the production of artwork, rather he requires assistance in letting his work be seen and taken seriously be contemporary art audiences.
