Peter Peri’s drawings and paintings exist at opposite ends of visual language. His dark, intensely worked paintings disrupt our spatial awareness, with the geometric forms and planes oscillating between surface and deep perspective. His drawings depict an eclectic range of imagery from Roman Catholic reliquaries to Modernist graphics, executed in a highly detailed manner. Together these works exhibit an almost alien logic that disorientates our understanding of perception.
