About my artwork
Charley Peters works in drawing, photography and print, exploring the liminal space in between technology and tradition, figuration and abstraction, chance and control, information and meaning. From painstakingly constructed photographic series to laborious hand-drawn renderings of mechanically produced materials, Peters’ concerns are with the meticulous re-presentation of the strangely familiar. Her current work explores the relationship between the autographic image and the visual language of mechanical reproduction; found images are manipulated on photocopiers, through digital printers or photographic processes, at times becoming source material for the production of intricate analogue drawings in which hand-drawn marks replicate the image traces left by mechanised technologies.

Drawing as a representational, factual practice aids us in developing an understanding of our complex world. Series of drawn lines converge to inform, explain and record our experiences of being. Peters’ current works assimilate both controlled and gestural techniques of mark making, and encompass mechanical and analogue methods of generating ‘drawings’. These drawings are a testament to the generative potential of destructive processes; images that begin as representational are often repeatedly rubbed away, crossed out or reinscribed, developing and demolishing the image in the same instant. Through these processes it is conceivable that forms of subtraction, however violently destructive, can also be seen as constructive. Utilising source material from the mass media, archival images and popular culture, Peters’ work explores the relationship between visual information and meaning.

An Analogue Art of Seeing

REVIEW: Where Time Gathers by Dan Fontanelli

Menier Gallery SW1 1RU, 12 May–16 May 2009



The temporal art of Dan Fontanelli gives us a monochromatic vision of the inner city through an explosive mash up of photography, painting, screen printing and the space in between. Using imagery captured on photographic film on long walks through back streets and alleys in London, Fontanelli’s multi-layered photographic assemblages are developed into painted and printed… Continue

REVIEW: du.ra.tion @ House Gallery, London SE5 8QZ, 7 April - 19 April

Du.ra.tion, the latest exhibition at Camberwell’s House Gallery, brought a slice of Cork Street art chic to South London in April. Bringing together the work of four artists, du.ra.tion explored the physicality of mark making and the transience of time. Working across a range of gestural drawing processes, surface manipulation and photographic intervention, artists Beverley J. Bennett, Laura Elizabeth Davidson, Sally Jones and Susannah King, used the intimate space of the House Gallery to… Continue
