Hard Country Hero II 30 x 30 x 40 cm Bronze 2005
Peter's previous sculptural work explained the opportunities that arose in transforming existing 2D images (ie. Digital prints) into 3D by building objects that used only the shapes that exist in the 2D images.
They were constructed from foam core, plastic, mild steel, corten steel, bronze and aluminium. Examples of this work are the Hard Country Series of Sculptures, which are based on the 'Hard Country' (Broken Hill) Theme, which was also explored in paintings.
More recently Peter has been exploring the rituals of cultural intercourse. These tableau are ‘curated’ in a manner to raise questions about their provenance, their use and their owners.
