He has painted since he was a child and after mainly working in print and graphics during his professional career, retirement has allowed him to pursue more of an interest in fine art whilst also offering a chance to experiment with a variety of techniques.

The exhibition by Peter Schoenecker, entitled ‘A New Way of Looking’, runs until Saturday, February 19 at Pocklington Arts Centre.

Peter said: “My aim is usually to create a mood or atmosphere using colour or black and white. All the mediums are enjoyable to work in and switching between them keeps me interested and innovative, hopefully bringing a freshness to the work.”

He often combines more than one medium in one piece, with for example a set of acrylic paintings on perspex being amongst his favourite in the exhibition.

He said: “I really enjoyed creating the three acrylics on Perspex works as this was a new technique for me and one that I feel has many possibilities.

“By using multilayers, new landscapes reveal themselves with the same mood as the original, but more abstract and with a life of their own.”

The exhibition is free to view. For further information plus PAC’s current opening times visit www.pocklingtonartsncetre.co.uk or call the Box Office on 01759 301547.
