Hailing from Middlesborough, Peter Goodfellow studied art at the Central School of Art in London and initially worked as a freelance illustrator, soon establishing himself as a leader in his field. Since moving to Scotland in 1985, he has become one of the countries best known landscape painters in both oil and watercolour. Latterly, he has also painted portraits, the urban environment and subjects expressing his view of the current state of the art establishment. He now lives in Aberdeenshire, running the excellent Lost Gallery in Strathdon with his wife, Jean.
He says of these two Paintings:
The mountain is Suilven in Assynt 90 x 140 cm oil on canvas 2007.This is my favourite landscape painting,& was on show in London, Edinburgh & Copenhagen . It was bought by a Danish Copywriter so it stayed in Denmark. The Double portrait is of Tracey Emin & is called The Gaze of Narcissus. 70 x 210 cms. oil on linen . If you look closely where the ripples form & become the right hand coloured portrait you will see a pound sign £. The left hand Black & White portrait is highlighting her lack of talent [Drawing, Painting ) so by self analysing her seedy & insincere past filled with promiscuity & drug abuse then documenting it by exhibiting unmade beds etc. she has made a fortune by just looking in the mirror.
