Peter Westwood is an artist, curator and arts writer living in Melbourne. For many years Peter’s work has concentrated on ideas about being within unsettled conditions. In this, he has worked through a long-standing interest in painting, but also video, drawing, installation and collage. In his approach to his work Peter seeks to consider the artwork as immanent to experience, and as much an ‘event’ as an object. His work has formed through ideas that reinforce of the passing nature of experience rather than as representation or imitation, or the depiction of a ‘thing’ or an affect.
