Recent work by Pete Greening is being exhibited in the upstairs gallery at the Cafe HERE, 28-30 Lower Kings Road, Berkhamsted, HP4 2AB from 2 December through to February 2015.
“I am a British, self-taught artist and have had many solo shows as well as paintings in many group shows. Recent solo exhibitions include the Old Town Hall Hemel Hempstead in September 2012 and the Upstairs Gallery Berkhamsted in July 2013 and my most recent group show was at the Brick Lane Gallery in London earlier this year.
My paintings explore the optical effects of linear distortion and arithmetical progression. The patterns and colours used are carefully selected to create either an optical illusion of movement, or to create a feeling of tension on the surface of the painting. Some paintings have recently been used as covers for the first three releases in a series of limited edition 12’’ vinyl LPs by the German record label Drone Records – see http://www.discogs.com/artist/2585331-Pete-Greening .
