Peter Atkins: In Stereo - Art Collector

Peter Atkins, Miles Davis – Kind of Blue, 2013, acrylic on tarpaulin, 215cm x 205cm. Courtesy of the artist and GAGPROJECTS, Adelaide.

Atkins describes his practice as ’ready-made abstraction’. Appropriating designs drawn from sources as diverse as product packaging, highway road signage and mid-twentieth century jazz album covers, he pares back extraneous details – typically removing text and any representational imagery – and reduces it to an abstract composition in which line, form and colour exist in a finely calibrated visual harmony.
