Peter Rinjo DeWood Wins Featured Artist Contest

I am pleased to announce July's Featured Artist Contest winner: Peter DeWood. Learn a bit more about Peter and his artistic technique in this press release that was sent to the media.

Using traditional Japanese sumi inks and acrylics on handmade papers, DeWood blends an abstract sensibility with the calligraphic and paired-down aesthetic of East Asian art to produce a unique body of vibrant modernist work. DeWood enjoys working with students, especially at the secondary level, to introduce this form of painting.

Mountains & Rivers


The winning piece, “Mountains & Rivers” was created in May of 2015 and inspired by the idea of perception vs. reality. “Mountains are mountains. Rivers are rivers. Nothing missing, nothing extra,” the artist says.

DeWood recommends floating the artwork on top of the mat and using a simple black metal or dark walnut frame with a narrow face. A black, gray or red mat would make a striking backdrop for DeWood’s piece.
