About

In the final week of his exhibition 'ecologies of optimism and dissent', artist Peter Driver will discuss his practice, techniques and the ideas within his work. He uses printmaking, drawing and performative actions to explore his diverse interests, which include societal relations; hermeneutics and ambiguity; generosity, gift and optimism; and the simple pleasure of enjoying wildlife and lowland landscape. This informal talk will include plenty of time for questions and discussion about the works in the exhibition.

Peter Driver uses printmaking, drawing and performative action to reflect his diverse interests including the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp, social relations, ornithology, lowland landscapes and his signature ‘March for Optimism’.

The Jam Factory is pleased to present Peter’s first solo show since graduating with an MA in Fine Art at Winchester School of Art.

The show will include Peter’s stunning woodcut prints, drawings, photography and video. He intends his visual practice to foster dialogue about meaning, environment, community and uses of power. This promises to be a visually engaging and thought-provoking exhibition.

The show will include some works for sale and a special woodcut edition that Peter makes to give away free of charge
