About this piece

2021 – Sole Street, Kent. UK

Turner Contemporary

At 88 years old Peter Vigar has always been reclusive and private person, never publicising himself or his work.  However, there is a small network of friends and contacts that are fully aware of the extraordinary creative work that Peter has created over many decades. Through this network Peter was nominated for a submission into the Turner Contemporary as part of the Open Exhibition to celebrate the galleries 10th Anniversary.


With help and encouragement from others Peter submitted “STELLA”.  From over 4,200 submissions “STELLA” was selected to be one of the 450 pieces of artwork for public display.

To mark this wonderful achievement and recognition I approached Peter to ask if I could carry out a photographic study of him in his home.  He gladly agreed to this once I outlined the approach and concept I wanted to take in the photography.  One thing I wanted to bring out is that his home, his world, is filled wall to wall with his artwork and items of inspirations.  This would be my starting point to capture him in his world.


After carrying out my first photographic cession with Peter I produced Photo 1 – 5.  Although he was delighted with the results I thought there was further to go.  One aspect of Peters work is a Surreal nature that pops into his imagery, this was something I felt should also be reflected in the photography.  Among many other things Peter has a love of ship and horse imagery, and can be seen all around is home.  I decided that a Horse should share the space in the photographs with Peter.  So we arranged a second cession and Photos 6 – 8 where then created.
