Artist
Peter Hoss Brookline, Massachusetts

Peter Hoss combines techniques of drawing and painting on paper surfaces. Despite classical training and a number of outside influences, he strives to capture his own voice and personal style in his work. When he's not making art, Peter tries to look at the work of other artists as much as possible. Recently, he gained an interest in cooking and sees a correlation between being a chef and a painter. He currently lives in Massachusetts. He grew up on a farm with nine brothers and sisters. Creativity runs in the family - four of his siblings also became artists.

    Artist Statement

    My artwork is about re-creation. My imagery is informed by the world around me, and from this I make something new. My process is about discovery. I work directly and intuitively, with imagery emerging from vigorously drawn lines, often partially erased or whited out and redrawn or collaged. My work has a strong interest in surface qualities and touch, using a variety of media – charcoal, pastel, gouache, tempera – on a variety of surfaces, onto which, applying historical picture-making standards and using every day materials, I draw or compile assemblages.

    I really like your work Peter. You have managed to create a unique and personal style...If I were invited to walk past ten store fronts with art, I would be most inclined to walk into the store with your art displayed out front. Congrats on capturing a captivating "voice" -- totally works for me!!!
