At first glance Peter Millett’s sculptures appear economic, precise and physically symmetrical yet upon closer examination imperfections abound, just like in all other things. These imperfections are actually the soul of his work as they are its living evolving character. Millett’s work is an exploration of material, meaning and surface as exemplified by rusted veneers contrasted with clean crisp galvanized wall pieces and the change that occurs to both given the inevitable passage of time. Geometry and philosophy are easy bedfellows in this study of space and form over time. “My work, though spare, is not minimalist, but rather modern. I seek to distill emotional energy and experiences. I like my work to impact a space the way a melody can trigger a feeling or memory, non-literal/non-verbal.” Born in 1949 in Evanston, IL Millett resides in Seattle, Washington. He received his Bachelors of Fine Art from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1971 and his Masters at University of Washington. The exhibition closes March 31, 2013.
