Peter Donald Granville - Edmunds

Concepts The artist's works are painted directly in response to music. He attempts to translate the essentially abstract nature of music to express emotion in paint in a more direct way, transcribing the fundamental structure and rhythm of musical composition, developing and harmonising pictorial themes as a composer would write music. Peter`s work is always an adventure, a never ending journey, and exploration, a discovery, a physical and intellectual experience. He is passionately interested in the process of `getting there`, continuously reworking, rubbing down, and scraping the surface which he describes as the `soul of the painting'.
