Peter begins with a B+W neg scanned into Photoshop where it is manipulated and multiplied to create a pattern that resists literal interpretations. Film is the finest source of monochrome images and digital is the only way to arrive at the final patterns. Bridges and industrial buildings are favored for their geometry and Pittsburgh is his geographical epicenter due to its vast supply of appropriate structures and proximity to his home. Peter's personal background includes a degree in science with Biology being his major but his education includes lots of Anthropology, Geology, and Sociology. After a second degree in Fine Arts Peter began working as a sculptor and made a full living with this, but after many years he turned his attention to an earlier fascination he has with bridges, old bridges of the iron and steel variety. This grew into his digital series on display at Three Rivers and has been a steady part of his studio endeavors. More recently, Peter has added Pen and Ink Drawing to his oeuvre which comes out of his days in biology labs where he developed a reputation for accurate renderings useful for test preparation. He spend a lot of time in the woods collecting stuff to draw.
