Peter Kent

I am a self-taught artist living in Bexleyheath. Following periods of mental illness (depression), painting and being creative provides me with a release and a way to express my feelings/emotions. As an artist, I try to create emotive and expressive pieces of work. My paintings range from the peaceful and calming to the tempestuous and disturbing, all of which depend on my physical and mental well-being. I like to create representational abstracts by looking inwards to produce work in a loose and abstract style that has a deeper level of self-expression, rather than simply referring to an outwards image. I believe the purpose of making art has much more to do with satisfying an artist’s passion to create, than commerciality. Centrepieces is a special place which encourages you to express yourself, creatively in an environment which is welcoming, relaxing and inspirational
