For several years, Gordon Peterson has re-examined his own earlier work as content for newer endeavours. This methodical strategy has provided the artist with freedom to explore new solutions to concerns of painting without the impediment of subject matter. In his first solo exhibition with the gallery, UNLUCKY 13, Peterson's work sought to continuously evolve throughout its nonlinear development, with the newest works taking cues from the growing number of those already completed.
Gordon Peterson is originally from Winnipeg, but currently lives and works in Toronto. In 2012, G Gallery presented his solo exhibition, Nightmare Painting, Painting of Nightmare Painting. Peterson has also exhibited at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Plug In ICA (Winnipeg), and the Khyber Centre for the Arts (Halifax). His work is featured in private and public collections, such as the Winnipeg Art Gallery, the Province of Manitoba and the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Manitoba.
