Peter’s current work deals with structure and text. Themes are mainly derived from Derbyshire landscapes and are explored using a variety of media and materials.
Acrylics are favoured and texture is created by additions of fillers. Surfaces are built up with reclaimed and found materials. These surfaces are then worked into with pigments which are applied and wiped away.
Peter has exhibited widely and has taken part in the Art & Architecture trail at the Wirksworth Festival for several years. He has been awarded the print trophy in the Derbyshire Open Exhibition twice and has had work commended on several occasions.
Meet Pete Gill demonstrating: here at Cromford Studio and Gallery June 5th, 11-3pm.
'I feel that my jewellery is essentially very wearable and fits as easily with a ‘little black dress’ as it does with jeans and a t-shirt. Simple and stylish sterling silver rings and earrings feature semi-precious stones, Cornish & Spanish sea-glass or textured and oxidised copper. My silver-plated range also includes semi-precious stones in bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Many pieces are influenced by the colours of the sea and each piece is unique.
