Peter Wal­cott Art Ex­hi­bi­tion

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Saint Lu­cian fine artist Peter Wal­cott will launch his col­lec­tion of works to art lovers in the “Ioüanalao” Art Ex­hi­bi­tion at the In­ner Gallery, Bois d'Or­ange, Gros Islet. The ex­hi­bi­tion is an ex­cit­ing vista of our is­land, first named “Ioüanalao” or “He­wanorra” in Amerindian, which means “There from where the iguana is found”.

“My paint­ings are filled with Saint Lu­cian im­agery,” says Peter Wal­cott. “An artist can do a trop­i­cal paint­ing which could be of any­where; in­stead I want view­ers fa­mil­iar with Saint Lu­cia to recog­nise my paint­ings to be that of our beau­ti­ful is­land and its unique scenic sights.”

Peter Wal­cott's abil­ity to ex­press his vi­sion comes alive on can­vas with his pre­cise choice of pal­ette, full of bright, light, acrylic paint, ap­plied with con­trolled brush strokes, in­flu­enced no doubt by four years of for­mal ar­chi­tec­tural train­ing.

Art to Peter Wal­cott is “sim­ply about the joy of cre­at­ing”. The In­ner Gallery in­vites you to ex­pe­ri­ence his vivid, light-in­fused paint­ings cap­tur­ing Saint Lu­cia's unique views in his semiphoto re­al­is­tic style. The ex­hi­bi­tion runs from this Fri­day Au­gust 17 to Fri­day Septem­ber 14, 2018.
