Outrance No. 2 by Peter Charalambides
Original Painting. A work that explores the concept of consumerism and the need to aspire and own.
40cm x 40cm
Pen, Acrylic and Spray Paint on canvas
A piece based on the exploration of the media, with particular attention on the portrayal of men and women within the realm of advertising. The piece also explores the concept of consumerism and the need to aspire and own. This is namely focused on the realms of high-end fashion and the perfumery sector, where the contrast between real life and that ‘aspirational’ life is at its most extreme.
About Peter Charalambides. UK.
Peter Charalambides is a self-trained painter living and working in London, England. The primary aims of his work is to create and destroy images in an attempt to produce something new, fresh and invigorating. The final works are characterised by colour and texture- qualities that magnify an expressionist style throughout his works. Peter is fascinated by the ideas of beauty and how this rather ethereal concept exists in our modern westernized society. Furthermore, these are often explored against the backdrop of drawings and writing that chronicle the triteness of everyday living.
