Event Details

Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce their first solo exhibition of recent works by Peter Combe.

“There is an alchemy that occurs, a trick of the eye, where color seems to occupy space—a void—at once ethereal, yet seen from another angle the whole appears as a recognizable image, veiled in gossamer.” —Peter Combe

Peter Combe employs appropriated, hand-punched paint swatches as his singular medium. In his newest body of work, Combe creates star-studded portraits alongside abstracted, striped pieces. Inserting circular paint swatches into perforated backings, Combe creates three dimensional works that experiment with the interplay of light, color, and movement—all placed into custom frames. His process can be characterized as neo-pointillist: taking a mathematical approach based in color theory.
