Biography  
Peter Collis


Peter Collis (b.1929) Born in London, he studied at Epsom College of Art and has lived in Ireland since 1969. He has exhibited at the Royal Academy in England and in Irealnd at the Royal Hibernian Academy and Oireachtas, the Irish Legislature. 

Desmond McAvock in The Irish Times, 1985 wrote: "Although one can always recognise the scene, it is the treatment that makes a Peter Collis landscape so instantly recognisable and individual. Like Cezanne he is really more interested in the structure of his scenes than in their transitory appearance, so that it is difficult to discover their season or time. He can bind his observation into a cohesive tightly controlled but always sensitive design."
