Biography from Mayberry Fine Art:
Peter McConville was born in Banbridge, Northern Ireland in 1951.  At fifteen he began his career in one of Ireland's textile print companies as a Textile Artist.  The position offered professional art employment as well as the opportunity to study fine art and design one day a week at Lurgan College.

His hard-edge style was developed by this experience.  The printing process used in textile design forced the artist to break color into solid shapes.  Peter experimented with this technique creating surreal, dreamlike images.  His earlier paintings were displayed in Belfast as part of juried shows.  Northern Ireland's history - rich with culture and scarred with conflict - was evident in his earlier work.  Peter immigrated to Winnipeg in 1974, returning to Banbridge in 1983.  He remained there until 1986 when he moved to Kamloops, British Columbia.  Peter returned to Winnipeg in 1992 and has lived and worked there since.

Peter McConville's newest paintings explore the depth and mystery of the Canadian forest.  In his words, "The fallen leaves and dead woods feed the forest a reminder of the cycle of life.  When I look into the forest, it reveals a wonderful range of deep rich colors.  The bright orange, red and green leaves found in the forest make up a natural, complementary palette."
