Press Release

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – AMERINGER | McENERY | YOHE is pleased to announce new paintings by David Allan Peters. The exhibition will open on 17 March and will remain on view through 16 April 2016. A public reception for the artist will be held on Thursday 17 March from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.

Several thin layers of acrylic paint are the foundation of David Allan Peters’ rich, dense, and intensely intricate works.

Highly physical, patience is required in creating these deeply topographical paintings. Intuition and exploration drive Peters as he dives into the layers with a linocut knife, cutting, sculpting, slicing, and carving.

Patterns begin to pulsate and radiate throughout the work. Painting turns into sculpting and gestures mark decisions and hesitations that are made, hidden, and re-discovered again and again. Like pages of a book, the edges of each work are built up revealing the passage of time.
