Paintings by Peter Harrington
Paintings in oils and watercolors, using iconic, metaphoric themes derived from nature.


 

An aesthetic influence for me has been with the Imagist School of Chicago, however my work has taken its own path into uncharted territory. 

My paintings have a haiku-like quality, are nature oriented, with philosophical themes.

A unique combination of natural and sometimes geometric elements are found in these paintings, a kabuki drama of primordial forms.

Some years spent living in Zen Monastic communities and solitary retreats in the wilderness have also lent a certain feeling of relatedness to the natural world and the paintings have since been marked by these experiences.
