Peter Voshefski

I saw a show of Peter Voshevski's work at the Perimeter Gallery at Chase's in Belfast, Maine this weekend. The top four images are from that show, and the bottom three images were obtained from the internet. What I really liked about the work is the delicacy and obsessiveness, and the supports he uses for the small paintings. He is using a thin plywood in many cases, which has been meticulously sanded and rubbed with paint to create this well-crafted surface. I love the way he just sinks in there and paints dots to his hearts content. You can see more about this artist, living and teaching in New Mexico, here. I wish the Perimeter Gallery had a website, but they do not.
