‘I don’t want intention to be the driving thing. It’s more about an aesthetic response.’ ~ Peter Acheson

Peter Acheson on painting



“…it is impossible and fruitless to separate the ochres and cadmiums from the entire mineral composition of the earth; pointless to distinguish the water in watercolour from the streams, rivers and rain – all part of the planetary water cycle. We say the painting is finished, but how can anything be finished in an unfinished universe?” ~ Peter Acheson
