Works by Peter Harrington

Artist Statement

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 characters enacting a brief, poetic drama. Often in an iconic, totemic expression.

An unlikely, but inevitable intersection of elements from primitive nature and the human presence, toward a philosophical whole.

Friends have commented on the humor and inventiveness of the way that 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 left a mark on these paintings.
