Winter's Light

"Winter's Light" - Peter Lovelock

January 25th - March 6th

Headline Exhibition at The Gallery @ The Guild.

Aspects of my work are becoming more abstract. Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) is a creative process that allows me to use elements of light, colour, line & texture to create unique & abstract images. Introducing motion to the exposure of an image enables me to essentially paint with light, using the camera as my paintbrush to create colors & shapes. All images are created by ICM. Not surprising for me, trees & the natural world are centre stage.

Meet the Makers - Saturday 2nd March, 12noon - 3pm. Meet and talk with myself and my fellow headline artists whilst browsing our new collections along with work by the other co-operative members. This events is open to all. We will be delighted to provide you with a complimentary drink to sustain you during your visit!

I'm also stewarding at The Gallery on Saturday 26th January, Friday 15th February & Wednesday 6th March, all 10am - 5pm. It would be great to see folk - the coffee bar is pretty good as well.

Peter Lovelock

My work is an emotional response to the natural world and the elements that create and influence its evolution. 
Trees, plants, organic shapes, landscapes, seascapes and rock strata are a particular inspiration to me. I have always been intrigued by the beliefs and ceremonies of Indigenous peoples and their connection with the earth and the wider universe.

I am a self taught artist who works with a variety of media, pen and ink, gold/silver leaf, pencil, intaglio and photography. When creating an image I draw attention to its detail and highlights its beauty - a celebration of the natural world.

The wilderness, beauty and isolation on the west coast of Scotland had a dramatic impact on me and was the initial impetus for my starting to draw/photograph in an attempt to interpret what I was feeling and seeing, it continues to be a major influence in my work.

As my work evolves, shape and colour are becoming more prominent and supersede the importance of the actual subject. My drawings have always been abstract forms. Some areas of my photography are beginning to take on a similar abstraction. In addition to my nature images I also enjoys searching for shapes in urban and coastal areas, buildings, churches and machinery etc. I also enjoy capturing and recording people, places and events through the medium of photography. My growing interest in shape and colour, regardless of the source, is clear to see. I have recently started to use Video. This enables me to express elements of my developing work that "still images" are unable to portray. Please visit my sites at 500px, Deviant Art, Vimeo & Flickr to view these aspects of my work.

My work is always available for viewing at The Gallery @ The Guild. An exhibition space for an exciting cooperative of more than 26 local artists and crafts people. Members include fine artists, ceramicists, contemporary designers, photographers, a cabinet maker, textile artists, printers, sculptors, glass art and a wood turner.
