About Peter

Canadian painter Peter Ferguson’s meticulously painted, darkly humorous narratives evoke early 20th century small town Americana (or Canadiana as the case may be). Combining the fantasy of the great ages of exploration with a distinctly paranormal bent, Ferguson’s work hovers along the lines of fantasy without ever fully teetering into full scale camp, and his work retains an air of both wonder and occasional melancholy.

"very dreamy scene with anger and hope"

"First I thought she was ready to fight and protect herself w/ the stick. Then I realized she is w/ a dog and was out playing fetch w/ the dog and came upon this spooky looking house. Curious of what or who was inside.Now I see there is another woman perhaps protecting her property too and it isn't a dog. It looks like a this that the painting has me thinking."
