Acrylic & string on canvas
Variable dimensions

Using saturated colors, rigorous application of paint, and abstracted forms these works are inspired by the artist’s personal experiences with natural disasters. Deliberately aligning these pieces with emotional energy rather than scientific data, Peters ripped and stitched the canvases throughout the process of creating the work. These rips, tears, and fastenings  mimic the process of experiencing the pain and healing of nature’s wounds.
