Pete Schulte

Artist statement: ‘Drawing is the cornerstone of my practice, which includes the integration of sculpture, site-specific wall drawings, and installations. The works are rarely predetermined, but arrive through the act of improvising and revising, with one work often begetting the next. Ideas and images, intuited or observed, are explored and re-examined in an effort to probe the boundaries of an inquiry. They favor a quiet geometry, nuanced surface, and the subtle use of chromatic color. My interests reside in the manner in which the language of abstraction can be utilized in service of both the meditative experience and as a carrier of meaning. Without irony, I am attempting through my work to craft a life affirming response to the existential, political, social, and ecological catastrophes that currently confront us’.
