Charley Peters’ work engages with the spatial potential of the painted surface. Starting from an interest in hard-edged abstract painting the work considers the manifestation of painterly language in the context of contemporary media, where viewers experience vast amounts of visual information in quick succession, often dematerialised and seen on screens. Using techniques of layering and juxtaposition as a means of exploring the materiality of paint, Peters explores the disrupted syntax of pictorial composition synonymous with our experiences of reading space, material and abstract form in the post-digital image world.
