Pete Newell 2016

Using subject matter to be found around Bideford I seek a synthesis of recognisable images with an exploration of the medium being used.

About The Artist

As an artist I am driven by seeking a synthesis between recognisable images and an exploration of the medium being used. Although originally trained as a sculptor my art activities now include drawing, painting and printmaking. I draw everyday as a learning and cathartic activity and all works start with numerous drawings and try outs in my sketchbook. A move to Bideford has rekindled an interest in nautical subjects reflecting perhaps my upbringing in Liverpool. I share my studio with my partner and it occupies a downstairs room in our house in Bideford High Street.
