DAVID ALLAN PETERS19 March–18 April 2015




NEW YORK, NEW YORK – AMERINGER | McENERY | YOHE is pleased to announce its second solo exhibition of paintings by David Allan Peters. The exhibition will open on 19 March and will remain on view through 18 April 2015.  A public reception for the artist will be held on 19 March from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.

David Allan Peters’ tactile works vibrate with color and each excavated cavern attests to the artist’s time spent applying paper-thin layers of acrylic paint to each wooden panel.

What appear to be the marks of a brushstroke on the surface of Peters’ paintings are topographical-like reliefs, the result of Peters plunging into the depths of each painting with a linocut knife.  These works challenge the basic understanding of painting and sculpting as Peters pushes the boundaries of acrylic paint and traditional painting processes.

His highly physical method of building layers of paint before cutting away and deconstructing each painting lends to the overall richness of each work and the harmony that is discovered among colors.

David Allan Peters was born in Cupertino, California, in 1969.  He 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.
