royale projects : contemporary art is proud to present a new suite of paintings in a solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist David Allan Peters.
Peters has become well known for his distinctive, idiosyncratic painting style. He layers hundreds of sheathes of acrylic paint on wood panels and then carves them with a linocut knife exposing stratified sub-surfaces, much like excavated implosions of kaleidoscopic color.
At first glance, the paintings can appear like frenetic, glimmering color fields that belie a certain hyper impressionism. A closer look reveals a labor-intensive work ethic and a precise, methodical process behind the art. The work ultimately reveals itself as minimalism deceptively cloaked in hundreds of brightly hued slices and cuts. Peters’ paintings continue to impose a hybridity that dissolves the boundary between sculpture and painting.
