Peter Ole Rasmussen


Peter Rasmussen is a painter using oil on canvas and paper. Over many years he has developed a personal and integrated combination of painting and mono-printing that he adapts to deal with diverse subject matter. This working method involves two surfaces of paper or canvas and paper which are alternately painted and immediately printed onto the other in an ongoing process. As this exchange continues two versions of an image develop either of which might become a finished piece. The process may be appropriately called a dialogue of surfaces. Peter Rasmussen deals with widely differing subjects in a cyclical rhythm so that ideas and themes overlap and pull through each other as much as the paint between the surfaces.
