Peter Pilgrim is primarily a painter who works with oils, acrylics and textiles. He has been fascinated with colour and the way it can be used within repeat patterns since graduating from the Royal College of Art in the 70s. Much of his work is about trying to capture neon light in paint. His precise paintings often incorporate textile elements when exhibited, placing generated textiles behind his paintings, or painting directly onto linen rather than canvas. Some of his work has been translated directly into textile design and digitally printed. Whitchurch Silk Mill have also turned his work into woven fabric.
