Original painting in plaster, oil, acrylic and ink on canvas. Canvas stretcher is 2cm thick

"The process of painting is a marriage between the fleeting nuances and the rooted impression of a space experienced, re-visited and conceived in relation to the landscape. I use a range of tools to explore mark-making, and drew early inspiration from the energetic and unique application of materiality of Terry Setch, David Tress and the work of Anselm Kiefer. Apart from celebrating the landscapes of Wales, I am always searching for new projects and have made my mark as a Welsh landscape artist exploring the story of Wales. I have recently completed a series of work on Port Talbot Steelworks and the welsh industrial heritage. I have also taken inspiration from the works of Dylan Thomas and painted scenes inspired by his prose in Laugharne. I am now Living in Bristol and looking at historic walks in Britain. I am currently creating a series of paintings of the River Avon, from Avonmouth to Bath."

Peter Kettle has recently been voted in as a Fellow for the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA).

Peter Kettle’s work has the surfaces of well-worn exterior walls, buffeted and corroded with the appearance of having withstood the effects of time and weather – a technique that gives his work an enlivening combination of stoicism and nostalgia.
