Peter Fraser: Mathematics




Since the early 1980s, Peter Fraser has been at the forefront of pioneering colour photography as fine art. With an almost obsessive focus on the ‘stuff’ of the world, Fraser is concerned with the matter that comprises our everyday. Rather than constructing his photographs, Fraser establishes a conceptual framework through which to respond to found images and situations. He treats panoramic landscape and the smallest details with the same intense attention, revealing the incidental beauty and strangeness of our surroundings.

For his exhibition at Camden Arts Centre, Fraser presents his most recent body of work Mathematics. Reflecting on the idea that time, space, and everything within it, can be described mathematically, Fraser brings together a series of photographs of seemingly disparate and unrelated objects and encounters – including still lives, landscapes and portraiture. Through their oblique juxtaposition and his almost analytical focus, he draws attention to the underlying patterns and forces which shape the world and our perception of it, as well as the systems of belief through which we try to understand and describe it. In this way his work might be seen to draw our attention to the spectacular and interconnected nature of everything that surrounds us, from the sublime to the mundane.
