Artist: Peter BEESON

The contemporary painter Peter Beeson trained as a jeweller and silversmith at the Sir John Cass School in Whitechapel. Having completed his DipAd Peter then spent some time in the music business before becoming a full-time artist in 1999

Peter Beeson's contemporary paintings are recognisable by their light-filled textural surface and quiet approach. A hallmark of Beeson's painting is the use of intuitive framing to find compositional balance. Techniques of the early Italian Primitives, especially the layering of temperas and oil paint, are rediscovered as a key element in the depiction of present-day subjects. These art materials, with their unique ability to refract light while maintaining structural integrity, are used to help realize the depth and form of a particular moment.

Peter Beeson prepares his art canvases by laying linen on board, then lightly priming the fabric across the weave to preserve its character. The process continues with a fine wash of middle tone containing only a small amount of oil, in order to retain a dry, tactile structure. The paintings are then developed in stages through the application of self-ground pigments and other organic substances. Rare earths, for example an English yellow Mine Ochre or a slate colour from the Bernino Pass in Switzerland, carry the resonance of their origins to lend tonal subtlety and inner warmth. At times the resolution of paintings is sudden and unexpected, at others they are completed as planned after careful reflection. Alongside these more formal considerations in Peter Beeson paintings runs a contemplative thread that evokes a deeply felt personal world.

Peter Beeson contemporary paintings have featured in a number of solo and group British art exhibitions. In addition to Red Rag Gallery his paintings have also been accepted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and are often to be found at Cornwall Art Galleries.

Each painting at Red Rag Gallery is sourced from the Peter Beeson artist studio and like all Red Rag British art and Contemporary art it can be shipped worldwide.
