EDDIE PEAKE | PEOPLE
22 sep 2018 – 24 nov 2018
Focusing on a single aspect of Eddie Peake’s artistic practice, People presents over twenty paintings for the artist’s fourth solo exhibition at the gallery in Rome. Working across diverse scales and materials, from vast spray painted canvases to intimate oil-on-board “self-portraits”, Eddie Peake experiments with the potential of the traditional medium to explore the drama of human relationships, from the personal to the political.
