Original abstract contemporary artwork, paintings & drawings by Ali Peate, a visual artist and graphic designer based near London in the UK.

In my paintings I am interested in exploring the visual relationship between the human response to order and logic. I find that working quickly using a variety of paints and painterly techniques works well for me, as it allows instant access to the visual order and/or chaos which so fascinates me. I make my paintings on paper, canvas and and found materials and objects, often working with whatever I have to hand. Ideas usually start as scribbles and sketches, often taking shape digitally using an iPad or iPhone. This allows me to experiment quickly with colour and form which can then develop to fully painted pieces.
