Peter Foley

United States

PETER FOLEY (United States) is an artist who works in a variety of media and materials. His artworks feature coincidental, accidental and unexpected connections which make it possible to revisit the work and experience alternative interpretations. Combining unrelated aspects which lead to surprising analogies and by experimenting with aleatoric processes, he makes work that generates diverse meanings. Associations and senses collide, space becomes time and language becomes image.

With the use of appropriated materials, he formalizes the random and emphasizes the process of structure that is behind the seemingly random marks. His thought processes, which are intuitive, highly subjective and unfiltered in their references to the moment, are revealed in his compositions.

His work questions the legitimacy of an image in the context of contemporary visual culture in which images, representations and ideas normally function. By applying a poetic and often metaphorical language, he wants to amplify the astonishment of the spectator by creating compositions or settings that generate tranquil lyrical passages that leave traces and balances on the edge of recognition and alienation.

He creates situations in which objects are altered or detached from their natural function. By applying random combinations and divisive manipulations, different out comes can be explored. Peter Foley currently lives and works in the San Francisco bay area.
