EXHIBITIONS: SENTIENT MOMENTS - PETER COUGLE
Peter Cougle Artist Statement
I have been focused on Life Drawing for the past few years and have
come to explore the variation in perception and subsequent rendering of the human body by different artists.
My work is spontaneous and off the easel – exploratory and construction marks often remaining.
More considered rendering may occur after the session.
I aim for warm and tender expression.
The sensual, yielding nature of charcoal and chalk lends itself graciously to the process.
This collaborative effort with artist Alison Parkinson exalts the variation
in perception and interpretation, our works complimenting each other in the same exhibition.
