An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.
I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.
The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Peter Acheson.
Peter Acheson was born Washington, D.C., and in lives Ghent, NY. Acheson received his BFA from Yale University.
“Each of the artist’s diminutive abstract works are empatically unmysterious and direct.” – New York Magazine
“[Acheson’s paintings] are a striking and refreshingly strange contrast to the slick, overproduced and ostentatious Chelsea commodities we’re so accustomed to. Wandering through this exhibition was like listening to old bootleg records, those intimate albums composed of weird material, outtakes, mistakes, and occasionally a beautifully odd track that, although the fidelity is for shit, you can’t get enough of.” – Brooklyn Rail
