Peter Usher

This new body of work demonstrates a combination of highly refined technique and observational painting, with a willingness to embrace new creative ideas and challenges.
“I feel that there is a significant shift in this work that reflects my own ongoing and deepening relationship to the landscape where I live and work”.

‘Outside In’ is about the fundamental challenge facing a landscape artist.
To bring a concept of ‘outside’ through an artistic filter, and then ‘in’, to someone else’s consciousness is a task that is at the heart of much artistic practice.  Peter’s use of detailed brushwork, subtle colour transitions and textural complexity, are all underpinned by a strong conceptual foundation.
‘Outside In’ is a confident show that points to an exciting artistic path ahead.
