<<Se opp for Rotemannen>>

by Peter Warren 

The Studios Inc Exhibition Space is pleased to present <<Se opp for Rotenmannen>>, an exhibition featuring resident artist Peter Warren, on view from 05.04.12 to 06.22.12

In Warren's current storm of creativity, he is dismantling his studio and creating art out of everything for the upcoming exhibition, <<Se opp for Rotemannen>>.  The show will include a broad range of work including installation, sculpture, two dimensional works and a performance by Trina Thompson Warren to create an all encompassing experience.

With “process” at its core, Rotemannen searches for strands of what was, what is, and what will be….an experiment to link both the chaotic and focused realms of his world. - Peter WarrenPeter Warren is a resident artist at The Studios Inc. The Studios Inc provides studio space, professional development, networking, and exhibitions for mid-career artists in Greater Kansas City.

Peter Warren at The Late Show

The Late Show Gallery is pleased to present:Peter Warren: Elvis has Left the BuildingMarch 2 - 31, 2012 Wednesday through Saturday 11am to 6pm or by appointmentOpening reception: 6 to 10pm Friday, March 2, 2012

There is no doubt that his raw materials, compulsively collected and amassed here, are pieces of junk: broken bits of outlived heirlooms; half-buried casualties of technology’s war on analog machines.  Yet this is no junkyard.  And Warren’s works are in no way polished treasures whittled from the piles of another man’s trash.  What Warren builds are mechanisms of resurrection, enlivened monuments of rust, soot, mud and dust—captured at their moment before total extinction, to stand for, celebrate in a way, the melancholic beauty inherent in abandonment and decay.  They are the figures, sculptures and landscapes of Peter Warren’s manufactory.       - Caleb Scott

I find the satisfaction and necessity of pattern within the delicate balance between chaos and order.  My goal is to let my instinct guide and inform my process and to allow the materials to find their own voice.  - Peter Warren
