There is a transience in Peter Ceredig Evans work that connotes a palpable yet insubstantial space. Flourishes of physical energy in the form of animated mark making flit across the canvass here and there, like a thought remembered, only to be lost moments later. It is blurred and dreamy, yet not always tranquil; it washes over the viewer, engulfing them in a strange lethargy. One might feel their eye is endlessly chasing something: a figure, a thought, a word, a reality.
The artist is concerned with the tension around the human experience, which often takes the form of human interaction. He sees this as the centre of humanity, saying human interaction is more important than anything else; all weve got is relationships. He often focuses on the power of memory, which is why his paintings carry this dreamlike yet completely tangible quality. Like a good poet, his work draws upon specifics, exact personal memories, images, conversations and people that resonate universally. He is especially interested in sense memories, saying that they give such a solid glimpse into ones own past: they are more than a photograph, they really are real.'
TO SUBMIT WORK TO THE SUMMERHOUSE GALLERY
Here at The Summerhouse we love to support both established and new, up and coming artists with an affinity to Cornwall. We do recieve a very large volume of submissions, and although we take care to view every artists work, it is very difficult to discuss work with every single artist who gets in touch.
Please send us a selection of work which you feel best represents you, along with an artists statement and a list of other galleries which represent your work if applicable. You can email this to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to our address, with contact details (email or telephone) which we can reach you via should your application be successful.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Tuesday - Friday: 10.30-5.30
