Artist Statement

The work of artist Charley Peters explores the liminal space in between chance and control. Interested in the pure aesthetic of line, her drawings are created as a response to material placed within a defined space: ink on paper, tape on walls, stretched yarn. Peters engages with labour intensive and process-based practices, where repetition and/or site specificity encourages generative methods of drawing. Employing visual systems that embrace both logical and intuitive processes of production, drawn lines are repeated, interrupted or transformed through physical, mechanical or architectural interventions. For Peters, drawing is a tool for active engagement and response - a reflexive and open-ended medium, which, through her practice, is constantly evolving in reaction to material and spatial concerns.


Artist Bio / CV
Peters’ artworks have been exhibited internationally. Recent shows include: Axiom, London (2013), LDN/BCN, Barcelona (2012), Slice, London and Lahore (2011), Drawing Connections, Siena (2011), Die Zeit of Drawing, Climate Gallery, New York (2009); and she has also made site-specific work for projects in the UK including A Haunting (2005) in collaboration with Salford University and The Windhorse Project (2009) on Oxford Road, Manchester, currently archived at the Art on the Edge Gallery in Second Life. In 2012 she was shortlisted for the Salon Art Prize and the Beers Lambert Award for Emerging Artists. In January 2013 she was Artist in Residence at the Centre for Drawing, London.


In 2006 Peters completed a PhD in Fine Art Theory and Practice, which explored notions of the interior space in art and its relationship to Freud’s writings on The Uncanny. She has held academic posts lecturing in Fine Art and Critical Theory at institutions including University of the Arts London, Manchester Metropolitan University and Victoria and Albert Museum, and visiting lectureships at Royal College of Art, University of Wales Institute Cardiff and Leeds University. Peters edited a collection of theoretical and creative texts, My Secret Rooms in 2006, which was published by Manchester Metropolitan University.

Peters is a member of London-based TBC Artists' Collective, who self-publish a magazine, 12-Pages and work on projects that interrogate individual members’ use of drawing practices. TBC are involved with collaborative art projects, and work together to curate, participate and facilitate the production of new work with an expanding group of international associate members. Peters, along with other TBC members Beverley Bennett and Laura Davidson, are actively engaged in research-led projects that explore drawing as a performative, interventionist or documentary medium, moving the act of solitary mark making out of the studio and into a collaborative, interactive environment.


Charley Peters lives and works in London.
