Wild Things

Like ambiguous modern fairytales Kevin Peterson‘s luminous paintings depict interactions between children and what in normal life would be highly dangerous, wild animals.

“My work is about the varied journeys that we take through life,” explains Peterson in his artist statement. “It’s about growing up and living in a world that is broken. These paintings are about trauma, fear and loneliness and the strength that it takes to survive and thrive. They each contain the contrast of the untainted, young and innocent against a backdrop of a worn, ragged, and defiled world.”

Peterson is represented by Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City, California. You can see more of his work on theirwebsite and his Instagram.
