Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Skull resting among a pile of Adidas sneakers.
A reference to the impermanent nature of our existence - I have positioned a skull amongst an expression of youth culture, ie. - trainers/sneakers.
I often employ traditional still life genre concepts to inform my work, such as the concept of a memento mori.

Artist Profile

Born: 1974

Hometown: Melbourne

Based in: Darley

Peter Tankey’s work is primarily centered upon the still life genre, making meticulously rendered often hyper-realistic oil paintings.

Whilst his work can be described as still life - his approach to the genre is often unconventional, constructing unusual scenes with non traditional objects. The tension created through bringing disparate objects together, and the interesting and novel narratives this process delivers - is one of the fundamental drivers for his work.

Shortlisted for several major prizes, his work appears in private, government and corporate collections (nationally and internationally).

Peter lives and works from his home studio in rural Victoria, Australia.
