Edward Peck studied photography, fine arts, conceptual art, historical techniques, film, and literature at the University of British Columbia. He then went on to work under a number of artists to develop his technical skills in photography, film, etching, watercolour, performance art and drawing. This has led him to work in many mediums over the years. Currently he is working with digital photographic processes and has shown his work in both group and solo exhibitions. Peck works collaboratively with other visual artists, exhibiting locally and internationally. His work is held in private, corporate and public collections. Peck also edited and produced anthologies of Canadian Literature as well as assisted in the editing of a Canadian literary journal. This has led to his editing and production of artist books and exhibition catalogues.

Peck’s digital prints are a recent addition to his repertoire, a departure from his traditional black and white imagery of some years ago. Whereas the content of his paintings more recently focused on the human body and its contours, planes and colours, he is currently exploring the shapes, textures and colours of our environment. While his most recent paintings celebrated the uniqueness of the individual, his new prints primarily reflect a unique and abstracted view of landscape, the human imprint and our constructed space. These reflections explore the intersections where our landscapes transition both naturally and as result of human alterations and conflicts in our constructed spaces. The abstracted imagery is expressed through the emotional connection we have with colour, light, pattern, texture and shapes, evoking various metaphorical aspects of the earth.

Restless and curious, Edward Peck has several projects in motion at the same time. This workflow makes time for marinating ideas, collaboration and linking ideas to the transitional nature of the world. Recently, his collaborative work with other artists, has opened up a deep discussion about the boundaries of artistic forms and audience: what it means to be living on the edge of a rain forest in a modern society that is engaged in a planetary destruction. What is the artist’s role? How does an artist reflect this in their work?
