Since the early 1980’s Peter Maloney has produced a vast body of works on paper. Very few of these have ever been exhibited.
This survey will be a “revelation” and “the tip of the iceberg” according to exhibition’s curators Tony Oates and Terence Maloon. Lyrical, improvisatory, diaristic, sometimes devastating in their emotional honesty, Maloney skirts and skirmishes with chaos and discovers a clarity and a coherence that never feels pressured. A sure-footed improvisor who embraces risk, Maloney is a live-wire graphic artist of extraordinary accomplishment.
