The Top 100 - Timed Auction (37/80)


Charley Peters makes paintings that are routed in the history of abstraction and haunted by a childhood spent watching too much TV.

“I grew up with an imagination being fed by Transformers cartoons, pixelated video games, heavy metal album sleeves and science fiction book covers. As an adult I found Krasner, Frankenthaler, Mitchell, Kelly and Newman in the art school library, and fell in love with their big, badass abstract paintings. I think about the paintings I make now as a mash up of all these things, remixed on a canvas as something new but also strangely familiar.” 

“My work reflects the graphically complex world in which we now live, where we simultaneously see multiple ‘windows’ on computer monitors, smartphones and digital tablets which display disparate images at once, each with their own temporal, spatial, and visual registers. I’m intrigued by the ways in which the once radical symbols of formal abstraction have become aestheticised signifiers of the dematerialised post-digital image world.”

“I think that my paintings are like abstract, interior landscapes from an imagination that sometimes prefers my painted, invented world to the real one. Everyone should have a place in the world and if you don’t fit into what’s already out there, you have the power to make your own.” - Charley Peters, 2021
