Peter Harrington - Kabuki Imagist
An aesthetic influence for me has been with the Imagist School of Chicago, however my work
has taken its own path into uncharted territory.
My paintings are a kind of Kabuki of forms, often have a totemic, iconic expression.
An unlikely, but inevitable, intersection of elements from primitive nature and the
human presence, toward a philosophical whole.
Artist friends have commented on the humor and inventiveness of the way things are
put together, pointing to the pure ideas behind the resolved work.
Some years spent living in Zen Monastic communities and solitary retreats in the
wilderness have also lent a certain feeling of relatedness to the natural world
and the paintings have since been marked by these experiences.
