Artwork by Peter Cunningham - Medium: Oil on canvas - Size: 72x144"
“A knowledge, understanding and love for the subject is evident in the interplay of light and colour across his beautiful landscapes and gardens, while his hauntingly evocative trainscapes and industrial scenes, seem to transcend beyond the merely pictorial into a realm of mystery and atmosphere...”
Peter was born in Birmingham England, in 1951. His family eventually moved to Staffordshire and there he discovered a love for the countryside and English landscape painting.
Central to his fascination with railroads is his delight in the steam locomotive. A machine that seems somehow alive! A being of steel and power, strength and majesty!
