What’s an Abate, a friend asked me? Artwork was my reply.
Abate’s work gravitates toward photography and geometric watercolor paintings. What I find most interesting is his Surrealist influence that pepper his work.
Peter’s efforts to tap into the creative powers of the unconscious carries him into new concepts of compositions and subject matter.
This is the reason why I was so excited for Peter to photograph me. I was curious to see what unrestrained territories he would
find as he accessed new routes to his imagination.
Here are some examples of Abate’s work taken in his home in Maine 2012.
