- Peter Dimick’s paintings are part of an ongoing search
for imbalance. He is inspired by random events and imagery from film
and print. He overlaps his own sketches with layers of paint as he
searches for the perfect imperfect stage of the painting.
Deconstruction and rebirth play a large role in his work. He destroys
and reworks the colors, shapes and materials themselves. He piles
drawings on top of each other and finds new images among the disorder.
He cuts finished paintings into pieces and sews them back together and
paints with anything from knives to the back of his fingers. On a daily
basis he is challenged by the lack of guidelines in art and enjoys
discovering new ways to approach his painting; whether he starts with a
drawing, a blank canvas or pieces of canvas sewn together. His
differing approaches are evident in his wide variety of styles from
abstract to realism.
