Peter is drawn to reflections on culture, community and the deteriorating effect of global warming and climate change. In each of these works, Peter attempts to state his felt response to the moments experienced and to leave the viewer with an invitation.
“Are we better at caring than fighting” is a reflection on our national story around Simpson and his donkey [ featured image] as well as our own mythology around ANZAC and violence, my own story as a member of the medical team in Cambodia/Phnom Penh pre Pol Pot in 1974/75 and the Jesus narrative around love/care and that acting for the poor, wounded, marginalised in this world [ and capitalist world] can lead to crucifixion – actually, symbolically or metaphorically.
