Peter Ferguson’s vividly imaginative functions read through like a lucid aspiration of an alternate background, recalling the aesthetics of Dutch Renaissance portray, outdated Nationwide Geographic photography, and 18th century British Naval heritage and 19th Century Purely natural Heritage illustrations. Meticulously painted, Ferguson’s darkly humorous narratives evoke an achronological magical realism, featuring composite cities and landscapes comprised of every little thing from from 16th Century European cities to early 20th century Americana (or Canadiana as the scenario may well be). Combining grandiose narratives of the excellent ages of exploration with a distinctly paranormal bent, Ferguson’s do the job subtly hovers the line among fantasy, surrealism, and realism with no ever falling into both of them fully. Norman Rockwell satisfies H.P. Lovecraft. Luminously painted and sophisticated in their composition, his paintings are built with a built in patina to evoke the feel of prolonged dropped magical will work identified in the dusty corner of some aged gentleman’s explorer club library.
