Joining us from May 6-12, 2018 will be artist Peter Fiore for a workshop on landscape painting from photographs. Before his workshop, Peter took a moment to give us a taste of his approach to art through our five question interview series.
Q: When did art first enter your life?
PF: Art entered my life when I first opened my eyes — seeing and remembering — my first memories are about light.
Q: Do you have certain themes in your work or subjects that reappear?
PF: I use the landscape to convey the feeling and quality of light. Light is the true subject of my paintings.
Q: If you could give only one piece of advice to a beginning artist, what would it be?
PF: Don’t expect to make the finished painting in an hour. Making art is a life time battle.
Q: What drives you to produce new art?
PF: The need to communicate. The need to make things.
Q: What show, project, or event are you most looking forward to in 2018?
PF: I’m embarking on a new body of work.
