Victoria Webb interviews painter Sammy Peters about his work.
Peters comments: "I’m not an artist who likes to wait for inspiration to paint, usually the act of painting is my inspiration to keep exploring…The specific imagery of each piece develops during the process of painting. In all but a few cases, I have no idea about the evolution of the image or where it’s going until I’m finished. I find that color seems to also work in cycles. Sometimes my palette is more neutral, at others it’s much more saturated with color."
Sammy Peters: Recent Paintings will be on view at Alan Avery Gallery, Atlanta from March 8 – April 20, 2013.
