Echoing overdue excessive Modernism, Peck’s paintings, within the phrases of novelist Joseph McElroy, is “a method of seeing things,” convinced “in the packed vividness of the referential.” keeping off the slender id- or group-specific point of view of a few of his contemporaries, Peck invitations us to go into the bigger humanscape and unearth with him disregarded connections to our shared earlier and to each other. In Contradance, his 9th assortment, Peck’s ardour for inquiry and ancient mirrored image hasn't ever been more suitable or extra superbly embodied.
