Artist as Mariner
Medium: Captured collage; archival, pigment inks and canvas.
“Artist By Artist –– an exploration of Cape Cod artist Peter Coes and his work by artist Cariappa Annaiah.” This appreciation of Peter and his artwork marked the release of my series, “Portraits In Context” and the introduction of an evolving medium, “Captured Collage.” An early example of this medium is my series, “Smear Paintings.” I create ephemeral paintings, collages or installations, illuminate the ensemble with ambient lighting to obtain a dimensional effect, and photograph and print with minimal post-processing. The ephemera is dismantled, and lives only as a single canvas print, hence the term, “Captured Collage.”
In each portrait, all elements that are seen alongside the artist are examples of his artwork.
Peter Coes, a long-time resident of Cape Cod is a multidimensional artist, and a master
He is also an experienced mariner, model boat builder, general handyman, and the list goes on, but always ends with nice human being!
