Charley Peters | Biography
Charley Peters is an artist based in South Bermondsey, London. By juxtaposing the familiar sensibilities of the Hard Edge, Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art with aesthetics suggestive of the development of the information age, Peters’ work references the language of High Modernism in the context of the recent phenomena of the high tech, filtered through the analogue act of painting.
Her meticulously made paintings reflect the graphically complex world in which we now live, where we simultaneously see multiple ‘windows’ on computer screens, smartphones and digital tablets. Creating her work intuitively by dividing the canvas into distinct compositional areas and building up layers of paint, Peters seeks to explore our experiences of reading space, substance and abstract form in contemporary visual culture.
Peters exhibits internationally, showing recently at Saatchi Gallery (London), Eagle Gallery at London Art Fair (London), Hauser & Wirth Showroom (London), Fold Gallery (London), Coventry Biennial of Contemporary Art (Coventry), Z20 Sara Zanin Gallery (Rome), Yantai Art Museum (Yantai), Art 2 (New York) and National Museum of Gdansk (Gdansk). She has a PhD in Fine Art Theory and Practice and teaches at arts institutions including University of the Arts London, City & Guilds of London Art School, the V&A and Turps Painting School.
