Pete sights colour and texture as the two aesthetics which need to be explored through Oils or Mixed Media processes. Influences on his work come from the late works of JMW Turner with their almost abstract values of colour and vibrancy, the depth of Callum Innes’ work where subtractive techniques draw you in, the forms and colours within the work of Sean Scully that sit in varying degrees of harmony with each other, the texture and colours of Anselm Kiefer and Gerhard Richter that have a deep history and tactile quality.
