Peter Craig


My work is primarily concerned with inner states of existence and my reaction to them in physical form.

As an artist, I want to appeal to a "collective unconscious" (Jungian term) by using colour and form and scale in a way that has cross-cultural appeal and meaning.
I try not to rely on symbols to do this as I believe that symbols removed from their original culture can lose contextual relevance, the connective tissue which is crucial to their meaning and use, and so my work relies primarily on spatial relationships and abstracted forms to create context and form.

My work is non-decorative in nature. I want it to transcend this and become the simple expression of complex thought, hopefully revealing truth as it does so.
I seek a synthesis of emotion with the intellect.
