Capturing life's moments
Pete Groves was born in Melbourne where he completed a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design at Swinburne Institute of Technology.
He exhibits in numerous solo and group art exhibitions each year and his work is represented in private collections in Australia, the USA, Japan and London, including the BHP Billiton London collection.
Painting is the way Pete recreates and relives observations and experiences. "It's my way of appreciating and celebrating a memory and reliving it. And when someone looks at my paintings, I'm able to share that memory with them," says Pete.
"People say my work has a lyrical quality and I suppose the interpretation I bring to each memory does lift it from the everyday.
"I like creating a world where harmony exists between nature and the man-made; where there's often a contrast between the serenity of a painting and the anxiety of the modern world," he says.
