Artist Statement

I hunt for unique pieces from the past and assemble them into complex collages of texture and color creating “Nostalgic Art.” Although many pieces are vintage, others I create by hand at the Baltimore Foundery. Each piece is positioned strategically to create a pattern that draws the work together. Planning takes several months for a new design. Assembly begins in the center and I work outward with construction taking place over several weeks. The completed pattern is then sealed using multi-layer epoxy resin, which creates shimmer and protects the work. The resin also allows you to trace your fingers over the different textures, for both a visual and tactile experience.

Artist Bio

 Peter Emanuel is a mixed media artist living in Locust Point who draws his inspiration from the energy and industrial vibe of Baltimore City.  His career as a research scientist involves precision and planning, which he translates into his work. Peter has worked in mosaic and drawing, but it is with mixed media that this artist and scientist work best.
