Working with his characteristically energetic approach, Peter Dickinson has created a super-sized new work in the days just prior to the exhibition opening.

The space in the upstairs gallery in Trowbridge Town Hall offers the perfect location for Peter to test his newly-developed ricepaper painting technique at a much larger scale.

Complimenting this new work is a collection of the artist's vibrant, gestural abstract paintings.
