Artist Focus: Peter Swift

A look at the artwork of Peter Swift

Peter Swift’s work combines two distinct elements: classical, realistic still life painting and symmetrical design. He has coined the term “symmetrical realism” to describe this type of work.Dignity of Work - Wood Screws, acrylic on canvas, 48 x 48"

Most of Swift’s work features circles because he believes the human brain has a deep psychological connection to them. 

In his Dignity of Work series, Swift honors the men and women who have used their hands, their tools, their savvy, experience and hard work to build our homes, our schools, our roads and in fact everything we see around us. 

“My goal is to use everyday objects to create laconic, resonant symmetries,” says Swift. Dignity of Work - Eight Spark Plugs, acrylic on canvas, 60 x 60"More of Swift’s work can be seen at the Seven Bridges Foundation in Greenwich, Connecticut. During the month of September, his work will be on exhibition at the Arts Club of Washington in Washington, D.C. —
