The Doorway Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition space on 25 South Frederick Street, Dublin 2.
This new gallery space will feature, a new artist each week, and this week we are featuring
Peter Dee grew up on a farm in Co. Kerry, moving to Dublin in his early twenties. Peter’s natural talent, obvious from his early sketches and paintings and developed over the years, he has achieved a recognised and highly regarded expertise.
Still Life is the main subject matter on which Peter has concentrated. In the tradition of still life painting, he paints all his subjects from life, using only natural light. This light transforms simple objects in Peter’s still life compositions into visually exciting images full of vibrant colour combinations. He strives to capture the effects of light as it affects various surfaces on objects such as fruit, enamelware, earthenware bottles, etc. He conveys a sense of drama in his paintings by the arrangement of the objects and their relationship to the space around them.
Peter generated great interest when he first exhibited his work publicly in 2002.
Venue: The Doorway Gallery, 25 South Frederick Street, Dublin 2.
The Exhibition will be on show from August 28th - September 2nd
