Peter Peri's work encompasses sculpture, painting and drawing. He develops these three disciplines independently which he then coagulates together to create complex compositional and relational conversations. All his works are devoted to the tension between figuration and abstraction, line and volume and the relationship between tradition and modernism. His sculptural works often have domestic undertones, reminiscent of assembled or disregarded household boxes compiled so as to become monumental and omnipresent. They posses a figurative human element rendered architectural and ambiguous through cuboid abstraction.
