An Artist's Statement

             By Peter Kinney

My art is a search for the spirit, rather than the letter, of the land; an inner essence of me and the earth intertwined in a personal mythology.  It may celebrate discovery of materials, a location, flights of imagination, wildlife, and more.

I love wild and remote areas, such as the canyon lands of Utah.  I collect interesting earths and muds, during my travels and use them as a basis for my Earth Paintings.  I use my fingers to manipulate my materials; also grasses, feathers, berries, seeds, insect wings, twigs, bones and shells my be found within my work.

I am inspired by what I see in the landscape, but also by what play, accident, and my imagination can suggest, and conjure,  as I work, including humor and symbol.  I love the senses, but also the world of the spirits which cannot be defined or pinned down,

and emerge through my subconscious.
