Join artist Peter Matthews for an insightful talk to discuss his painting 'Suspended Aura'.

Born in Derby, Peter Matthews works alone along the coasts of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. He was recently nominated for Spectrum Art Award which celebrates the innovative work produced by artists on the autistic spectrum.

Immersion with the ocean and nature is central to Matthews’ practice, discovering the notion and experience of the journey.

His work explores the performative and the conceptual, the experimental and process and material based inquiries into how he experiences time, place, space, the sublime, the ineffable, the transient, the impermanent, the romantic, the mysterious and the poetic.
