Peter McConville portraitPETER McCONVILLE was born in Banbridge, Northern Ireland in 1951. At age 15 he began his career at an Irish textile print company where he could pursue art professionally while also studying fine art and design one day a week at college. The printing process used in textile design influenced his method of breaking colour into solid shapes. Peter experimented with this technique creating surreal, dreamlike images. His earlier paintings were displayed in Belfast as part of juried shows. Northern Ireland’s history – rich with culture and scarred with conflict – was evident in his earlier work. Peter immigrated to Winnipeg in 1974, returning to Banbridge in 1983. He remained there until 1986 when he moved to Kamloops, British Columbia. Peter returned to Winnipeg in 1992 and has lived and worked there since. His current work explores the depth and mystery of the Canadian forest. In his words, “The fallen leaves and deadwoods feed the forest, a reminder of the cycle of life. When I look into the forest, it reveals a wonderful range of deep rich colours. Its bright orange, red and green leaves make up a natural, complementary palette.”
