'Recent Works' art show at Pictorem Gallery
Pete's first exhibtion of his personal, non-illustration work is currently showing at Pictorem Gallery in East London. Featuring nineteen recent pieces, originals and high quality prints are on sale.

“The pictures showing here are intended to resemble children’s book illustrations that have drifted away from the books themselves and into dark corners and shadows, away from childhood and into the adult psyche. The underlying consoling structure of children’s books have been discarded and replaced with a dream world of anxiety and absurdity. A ‘half-place’ that is uncanny and eerie, not quite right, in which things are in the wrong place or at the wrong scale. The sense of displacement that comes from my adoption has become increasingly integral to my personal work. Objects or people tend to drift free of their surroundings, or are just not where they might be expected to be. A sense of children wandering in a world where things aren’t how they should be keeps emerging." 

All prints are on high quality Hahnemule German Etching 310 gsm. art paper, printed by Aaron at

September 4th to October 1st.
