Cheshire based artist who is part of the Electric Picture House Artists' Cooperative. Petra's artwork mainly consists of paintings and collages. The paintings are mainly abstract, exploring emotional response, colour and form. Some become landscapes; others function on a purely emotional level.
The collages focus on the inability of communication to visualise reality, to reflect dissonance between from and content, and the disfunctions of language. Through the juxtaposition of image and text the viewer is drawn into a world where they can create their own connections and stories. They also contain a touch of surrealism and plenty of humour.
