Artist Biography:
Peter McClintock currently lives with his family in the Gateway Arts District outside Washington, DC where he maintains a studio and creates oil paintings as a profession. Upon completing an extraordinary year at the Virginia Military Institute in 1978, Peter transferred to Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond where he earned his BFA in Painting in 1982. He then moved to Austin, TX, where he continued painting and established himself as a craftsman. Pursuing both painting and fine woodwork Peter relocated several times, residing in Washington DC, the East Village in NYC and finally, suburban Maryland. He focused on fine furniture and architectural millwork through one of the regions most distinguished builders until 2011. The experience informed his artwork; witnessing the influence architecture has on the way the world beyond is perceived. After a few years working in art education, Peter committed fully to creating paintings that reflect his dedication to craft and his unique expression of how we see the world.
 

Artist Statement/Focus


Artist Statement:

My paintings focus on the horizon of our own architecture - looking beyond to the whim of the outside. I believe we all come to construct a personal refuge, static and comprehensible, as context for the surrounding random dynamic. Each painting is built of two independent panels physically joined; the bottom constructed and precise, the top arbitrary and atmospheric. A negotiated moment of equilibrium.
