Mutualisms – Peter Smyth

‘Mutualisms’, Peter Smyth’s debut solo show, is inspired by the often unseen and abstract operations within plant ecology.

In his work, Peter considers the parallels between the natural occurrences of plant ecology, and that of his painting process – specifically, the painting’s relationship to the digital processes that are used to create them.

As part of his process, Peter uses computer generated renders as creative stimulus, and translates them into original painted works. 3D models are drawn from facets of plant ecology, above and below ground.

“Mutualism is usually defined as an interaction between individuals of different species which result in beneficial effects. To me, the painting is entangled in a mutualistic relationship with the digital medium.”

What we see exhibited are a collection of colourful, abstract paintings – no digital pieces. Similar in theory to plant life, where we often see what is above the ground, not the processes underneath that initiate the growth.

The exhibition continues until Saturday 2 April, opening Wed-Sat, 10am-4pm each week, no booking required.

All exhibited artworks will be available to buy online at once the exhibition opens.
