Ten Cubed began collecting Atkins in 2016 and have continued to collect him through out 2017. Atkins’ practice centers around the appropriation and re-interpretation of ready-made abstract forms that he documents within the urban environment. This collected material becomes the direct reference source for his work, providing tangible evidence to the viewer of his relationship and experience within the landscape. Particular interest is paid to the cultural associations of forms that have the capacity to trigger within the viewer, memory, nostalgia or a shared history of past experiences.
Peter Atkins is represented by Tolarno Galleries in Melbourne and Gagprojects in Adelaide.
