Dr. Charley Peters
Dr. Charley Peters is a London-based painter, writer and curator who teaches on the BA (Hons)and MA Illustration and Visual Media courses at London College of Communication.
Charley’s geometric abstractions use visual systems such as linear perspective and repetition to explore the pictorial relationship between two and three dimensions. She is interested in the position of painting in the post-digital landscape – her work presents a materiality informed by the experience of looking at screens, abstraction in HD.
In 2006 Charley Peters completed a PhD in Fine Art Theory and Practice. She is a contributing writer to Abstract Critical, covering contemporary writing on abstract art, Turps Banana painting magazine, a-n and Saturation Point, the online editorial and curatorial project for reductive, geometric and systems based artists working in the UK today.
In 2015 Charley curated the exhibition ‘Generator: Systems, Logic and the Analogue Art of Programming’ at Kaleidoscope Gallery in Kent. She also works as part of the curatorial group Saturation Point Projects to develop exhibitions and public events that raise the profile of and encourage discussion about contemporary reductive, geometric and systems based abstraction.
Charley has exhibited work widely, with recent exhibitions including Tutti Frutti at London’s Turps Gallery (2015), London Painting Survey at Barbican Arts Trust (2015), Demimonde at Amberwood House (2015), Autocatalytic Future Games at No Format Gallery (2015), Drawing: Punti di Vista/Viewpoints at Z20 Sara Zanin Gallery in Rome (2014), and Tracing Fields at Amsterdam’s Ten Haaf Projects (2014).
