Peter Caden Artist Statement
Peter Caden was born in Toronto in 1955 and recalls that his first significant art influences were the frequent visits to the McMichael Art Collection and the Royal Ontario Museum. The teachings of Hans Hoffman and Josef Albers have also impacted his studies in mid-century painting and ceramics.
He is self-taught and began experimenting with gouache and encaustic in 2007 and is currently painting with acrylics and inks. Peter enjoys the methodical process developed to form visual fields of built-up, linear elements that create both bold and nuanced colour interactions. While focusing on non-figurative subjects and dynamic colour, his paintings are now primarily concerned with creating images that are refreshing, reflective and sometimes whimsical.
His work is available at The Frame It Store and A+ Art Gallery in Red Deer.
