about Kevin Peterson

Children and animals have always been a symbol of innocence and purity we never get tired of sharing and looking at, especially in a place where everything seems so sadly driven by material interests. In Kevin Peterson’s paintings, they join forces against this mad world, in the background of a city marked by loneliness and graffiti.

“My work is about the varied journeys we take through life. It’s about growing up and living in a world that is broken. These paintings are about trauma, fear and loneliness and the strength that it takes to survive and thrive. They each contain the contrast of the untainted, young and innocent against a backdrop of a worn, ragged, and defiled world. Support versus restraint, bondage versus freedom, and tension versus slack are all themes that I often visit.

“My work deals with isolation, loneliness and longing teamed with a level of optimistic hope. Issues of race and the division of wealth have arisen in my recent work. This work deals with the idea of rigid boundaries, the hopeful breakdown of such restrictions, as well as questions about the forces that orchestrate our behavior.

Kevin studied art at Austin College in Sherman, TX, where he received his BFA in 2001. He now makes his home in Houston, TX, where he works out of Winter Street Studios.
