ABOUT THE WORK
Peter's matte acrylic prints are striking and hugely memorable. He combines traditional painting techniques with digital practices in his work and here we see the artist play with tone, proportion, and symmetry to create prints with small, compelling variations. Their confident nod to American minimalism within an abstract setting commands our attention. As viewers, we are occupied with a continual loop of comparison and contrast. The bold nature of the forms here is deceptive, as there is always something new to see within these pieces.
Peter Demos (b. 1981, Wheat Ridge, CO) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. His work commands attention as the apparent simplicity that initially strikes the viewer gives way to understanding of the complexity of his technique and the deep tranquility that can be found in his art.
He has put on well-received solo shows at The Journal Gallery (New York), RH Contemporary Art (New York), and the David Richard Gallery (Santa Fe). His group exhibition portfolio includes shows at the Eric Firestone Gallery (New York), CCA Andratx (Mallorca, Spain), and the Munkeruphus Museum (Denmark). Peter was awarded the CCA Andratx Studio Residency in Mallorca, Spain in 2015 and the Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation Studio Residency in Brooklyn, New York in 2011. He was also the recipient of the prestigious Tony Smith Award in 2009.
