Peter Blume

November 6th through February 14th 2015

By embracing the irreconcilable, Peter Blume transcends Modernist art’s conventional aspirations to re-define order in a chaotic world. His oeuvre is metamorphosis itself, a realm where paradox rules. Within that clash Blume found profound meaning and sublime beauty.
