Wallace Peck paints at the Open Door Studio in Grandview, Ohio… a program for developmentally challenged artists.
On the surface of his paintings lines and fields of color mix to form large, abstracted figures. His process has evolved over time, but he currently prefers to paint a background first, using various layers of color, often shades of blues and grays. When he is pleased with the overall design, Wallace uses a paint marker to sketch in figures or other imagery. He then apply thin layers of paint to build up the subject matter. Lastly, he adds other details using paint and various markers.
Wallace paints “people I know, people I trust”…. also celebrities, buildings and animals (mostly dogs).
