LewAllen Galleries presents “Boundaries Extended,” a show of work by abstract painter Sammy Peters. A resident of Arkansas, he has enjoyed a five-decade-long career.
Painting in oils and mixed media, Peters creates multi-layered, textural canvases with geometric forms that seem to float in space.
In an artist statement, he says, “Visually I’m interested in the spaces and places between the cracks of what I know. In a formal sense, I’m attracted to colors that are hard to name. Frequently when the painting is complete I find a hint of a still life, a landscape, an interior or even a figurative element. Much like finding images in the clouds.”
