Exposition digitale de Pete REY

Rey’s creative journey began at a young age, initially signed to BritArt at the age of 21, selling abstract fine art photography prints. Rey then applied his creative talents to create an international production company, completing a large number of worldwide commissions, from which a love of travel and the world’s beauty in photography was born. 
Returning to the art scene with a wealth of production skills and digital imaging expertise, Rey brings with him a fresh look of abstract artistry to the fine art world. He has always been fascinated by the science behind the known world, studying Human Sciences at University College London in his early twenties and also enjoying a talented grasp of technology. Applying his love of science, technology and creativity to the artistic process, he has developed a unique expression of art from a photographic starting point. 
Using source images from NASA as inspiration for each piece in his latest collection, ‘Atmosphere’, the body of work is a celebration of the life’s work of Gordon Miller Bourne Dobson CBE FRS, the great grandfather of the artist. Dobson’s work on the atmosphere was instrumental in the discovery of the hole in the Ozone layer and propelled a much greater understanding of the entity as a whole, for which he was awarded a Knighthood from the Queen and a Fellowship from Merton College, Oxford. It is perhaps no accident that his great grandfather’s most famous work and discoveries were founded upon the application of unique photographic processes.
Inspired by meditational practice where one can often see auras and movements of light, Rey takes inspirational original source images and transforms these into entirely new works through digital painting techniques, producing breathtaking pieces of large format art. Throughout his work, Rey takes us on a journey, to blur the lines between known dimensions, creating unique artworks to represent the transcendence of energy flows into what is termed the ‘Quantum’ and beyond.
Working as a digital artist but delivering his work as vast immersive prints, Rey breaks down the traditional separation between the digital and physical artist. It is a process he has termed ‘Phototranscendence’, which creates strokes much like those of a painter’s brush, whilst preserving the original color palette. Upscaling their size to mesmerizing wall sized prints and working in a true 16 bit color palette (65,536 tones) to produce stunning image gradations, Rey gives us an entirely new and original style of art creation, bringing with it new perspectives to the world around us in a series of limited edition prints.
