Peter Booth | Art Collector

Peter Booth‘s drawings have been included in Art Collector’s annual special of artworks available for $5,000 and less. The works are great entry level pieces for anybody wanting to start a collection, or for anyone wanting to add an established artist to their stable. Their strength is drawn from the haunting imagery of the anonymous figures and apocalyptic landscape.

“There is a quality of isolation – not loneliness – in his drawings and a dignity about the figures. Irwin suggests ‘they represent Everyman in the same way Henry Moore’s monolithic women represented Everywoman.'” – Amanda Woodard

Peter Booth’s available drawings as well as oil paintings can be viewed on the Olsen Irwin website.
