Peter Cooley

Scott Livesey Galleries, 25/05/2022 to 18/06/2022

The new terracottas reference prehistory forms and decoration. These works have taken a previous iteration of a similar aesthetic on a Mount Warning theme, transposed to the Blue Mountains and evolving the work to a more directly expressive form in the making, to push at the limits around balance and tension. The more direct approach to decoration is simpatico to the terracotta surface, providing a natural integrity.Drawing on a range of influences, including memories of living in Paris as a young artist, and to the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay, viewing the African commercial galleries with beaded and woven textiles, and more recently ...
