Behind The Lens of 'Incandescent'

Posted on October 17, 2016 by Peter Hyatt | 0 Comments

In preparing some words for my participation in The Other Art Fair later this month i wanted to provide a short statement about what mattered to me as a visual artist.

This is as good a place as any to run with my approach and ends the film short now on this site hosted by Vimeo and also on this site under 'Film':


What do I want my art to do?

I want it to speak of curiosity

to speak beyond wallpaper

to imagine and wonder

and see the world in other ways.

Rarely is there genius in art

beyond the rhyme of

Michaelangelo, Leonardo and Picasso

Genius is too often artfully disguised

while the rest of us must labour

to make art

that helps make us.
