Peter Watson. The Electronic Latticework within Peter Watson’s Digital Photography

Through the use of digital photography, Australian-born Peter Watson captures and distorts beams of city light, which blur into brightly colored woven abstraction.

Peter WatsonWith years of experience working with color theory in photo labs, Watson keenly delivers a pure optical vision, exploring each color’s vibration as it harmonizes within the composition. Watson thinks of light as a material. To him, it is a substance like paint to be moved around, manipulated, and stretched. Because of this, his work transcends the boundaries of photography, culminating into an emotively charged world of electronic utterances.

Through travel, Watson seeks just the right circumstances to frame and transmute into a unique photographic phenomenon. During his travels, the details within urban spaces speak most poignantly to him. A beam of neon dances off the side of a building, an orange-tinted windowpane emits an intriguing haze – these moments hang over him curiously, waiting to be transformed through his lens. Once translated, they result in an image that is both abstract and recognizable, while also poetic and purely sensational.

About the Exhibition

In Evolving Abstraction, these artists reflect the beauty and complexity of the world they see through taking a step back and portraying them through the lens of artistic vision rather than with representational accuracy. Often experimental, the works are innovative in their quest to find the best tools and techniques to convey the idea that exists in the artist’s mind and share it with an audience hungry for a fresh perspective on what they see every day.
