PETER KETTLE FRSA RCA
An emerging talent and British Landscape Painter, Peter creates paintings by immersing himself in the landscape. By taking planned journeys around his native Wales, exploring the remotest regions with his sketchbook, recording colour, texture and weather elements. Back in his studio he will work these studies up into ambitiously scaled, expressive landscape paintings, using paint and other media poured, rubbed and splashed onto the canvas. Having worked exclusively in oils, his technique has broadened to incorporate the use of French Chalk and Shellac with oil giving his paintings the impression of well-worn exterior walls, buffeted and corroded over time. The effect is a characterful, well weathered surface, stony and granular that is at the same time luminous with dramatic light. In 2014 he was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA) and the Royal Cambrian Academy (RCA) He was identified as 'One to Watch' by Moneyweek Magazine in the same year and in The Guardian in 2017. Peter Kettle is certainly an exciting young talent on the rise in contemporary landscape painting. He has made works of the Port Talbot Steelworks, The Taff Railway Trial to the Brecon Beacons (marking the coal transport route and source of the River Taff) and North Wales Slate Industry. In 2018, Peter turned his attention to Patagonia, and spent 4 weeks retracing the steps of the Welsh Settlers Voyage. He also payed homage to Kyffin Williams trip to Trevelin in Patagonia 50 years ago to this year. Peter is growing into an international artist, with pieces held in public and private collections worldwide.
