Victoria Webb interviews painter Sammy Peters about his work.
Peters comments: "I’m not an artist who likes to wait for inspiration to paint, usually the act of painting is my inspiration to keep exploring...The specific imagery of each piece develops during the process of painting. In all but a few cases, I have no idea about the evolution of the image or where it’s going until I’m finished. I find that color seems to also work in cycles. Sometimes my palette is more neutral, at others it’s much more saturated with color."
Victoria Webb photoblogs visits to several painting exhibitions currently on view in Atlanta, including A Web of Artists: Friends of a Social Network on view at Thomas Deans Fine Art with paintings by Ken Kewley, Philip Koch, Paul Behnke, Harry Shooshinoff, Bill Gingles, Donald Beal, Mitchell Johnson, Alicia Rothman, Greg Minah, and Rick Stevens (through October 13).
Edited by artist Brett Baker, Painters' Table highlights writing from the painting blogosphere as it is published and serves as a platform for exploring blogs that focus primarily on the subject of painting.
