Melbourne artist, Peter Summers, is about to relocate to Shanghai, China. He was a participant in 'Unsighted', 2012, a group show at fortyfive downstairs. Summer's paintings are exquisitely constructed via a repeated layering and removal of thinly applied washes of oil paint. Summers has been painting and exhibiting for 15 years, and through a process of reduction creates atmospheric minimalist paintings.

Summers completed a BA from RMIT University in the mid-1990s. He was shortlisted for the Bret Whitely Scholarship in 2001, 2002. In 1994 he received the Ella Donald Service Memorial Scholarship. His blog can be viewed here.
