Peter Dee is an Irish born artist who grew up in Kerry on his family’s farm, moving to Dublin in his early twenties. It was after this move that his natural talent began to flourish. Peter generated great interest when he first exhibited his work publicly in 2002. He has been consistently successful in selling his paintings in galleries and at various exhibitions.
Still Life is the main subject matter on which Peter has concentrated. In the tradition of still life painting, he paints all his subjects from life, using only natural light. This light transforms simple objects in Peter’s still life compositions into visually exciting images full of vibrant colour combinations.
Peter works in oils and his classical realism style is influenced by contemporary Dutch still-life painters. In his artwork, he strives to capture the effects of light as it affects various surfaces on objects such as fruit, bottles, earthenware vessels, etc. He conveys a sense of drama in his paintings by the arrangement of the objects and their relationship to the space around them.
His work is now in corporate collections including Bewleys Group, Enterprise Ireland, Forfas, Aer Rianta, etc. His work has also been exhibited at various art exhibitions including The Dublin Painting & Sketching Club, The Dublin Art Society, Kilkenny Arts Festival and Wexford Opera Festival.
