Jonet Harley-Peters

Jonet Harley-Peters takes the natural world as her starting point. She interpret the effects of light on plants water and earth. As well as the shapes and shadows that float on the surface of fragile and changing nature.

‘I’ve always been drawn to symmetry and pattern and first started to explore geometry and proportion in my last year at Art school. Part of my childhood was spent in East Africa and the rest on the edge of Dartmoor. Africa gave me colour, pattern and red earth – while Dartmoor was full of mood, mist and water.’

Jonet works with basic geometry using raw pigments and photography to make low relief constructions and photo-montage. Her work is based on what I see in the natural world.

‘I take photographs and cut shapes to produce fragments and then take what I need to reconstruct to make a new ‘version’ and tell a new story. I am currently using triangles but my response varies due to the demands of the material.’

Raw pigments have an intensity of colour and photo-montage shows the extraordinary detail and texture of the natural world. Simple geometric patterns provide a solid structure on which to base explorations with colour and image.

Jonet Harley-Peters works mainly in low relief construction with curved and cut shapes backed with heavy weight paper and cardboard , when mounted the constructed shapes appear to float away from the surface. All the work is box framed .

We were so keen to launch our Artist Directory we have decided to launch the first phase in advance of the costing and portfolio generation section.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

If you would like further information about this artist or their available artworks please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
