A painter, sculptor and illustrator, Jeff Peters utilizes the recurring theme of pre-conceived notions of beauty. Brought up in a picture-perfect environment where any disorder was a catastrophe, the artist has grown, in his own words, “suspicious of beauty, of value and of desire.” His paintings are an attempt to reconcile his most immediate surroundings. A backyard fruit tree turns into an an “overworked, overproducing glitzy starlet, with perfect, supple fruit that should be on the cover of a cosmetic package.” It begs the question: What beauty can I trust?
Peters works out of a studio in Costa Mesa, California, and his art is in the permanent collection of the Laguna Art Museum.
