David Allan Peters

David Allan Peters layers countless sheathes of solid colors which he then carves into, leaving small craters that bring into view the stratified sub-surfaces. His artwork gives the initial impression of a frenetic, expressionistic approach, but upon deeper consideration, a more rigorous and precise practice is revealed. As Peters forms his pieces, the boundary between sculpture and painting is examined and dissolved as he recognizes potential in the by-products of each successive step. Peters received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the San Francisco Art Institute in San Francisco, CA, and his Master of Fine Arts degree from Claremont Graduate University in Claremont, CA. He has had numerous solo exhibitions, including shows at Miles McEnery Gallery in New York, Royale Projects in Los Angeles and Palm Desert, AKA PDX in Portland, Chandra Cerrito Contemporary in Oakland, and Marc Arranaga Contemporary Art in New York. David Allan Peters lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
