Emerging talent Peter Kettle creates ambitiously scaled, striking and expressive paintings of the Welsh landscape.

About

Emerging talent Peter Kettle creates paintings by immersing himself in landscape. By taking planned journeys around his native Wales, he will explore the remotest regions with his sketchbook, recording colour, texture and weather elements. Back in his studio he will work these studies up into ambitiously scaled, expressive landscape paintings, using paint and other media poured, rubbed and splashed onto the canvas.  The effect is a characterful, well weathered surface, stony and granular as a drystone wall, that is at the same time luminous with dramatic light. 

By using mixed media, the various reactions between combinations of textures, pigments textures, so the surface of the painting is as inherent as its image. His paintings go through a number of stages, with Peter taking his canvases outdoors during the process, allowing wind weather elements to batter the surface, creating unpredictable patterns and texture.

Peter Kettle began his career in a studio in a freezing converted cow shed, just outside Cardiff. He has recently relocated to a studio in Bristol, maintaining his travels to his native Wales, which remains a continual spur for his work. His is an elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA) and the Royal Cambrian Academy (RCA) and has exhibited in Bath, Bristol, Oxford and Wales.
