Peter Gough (1947-2020)
Acrylic | Liverpool, NS
Gough began his art education at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, having received a scholarship to the college in 1969. Three years later, Gough attended Andrews University in Michigan, USA and continued his fine art education under the influence of sculpture Allan Collins, who designed the Kennedy Memorial for John F. Kennedy at Runnymede.
A realist painter, Gough was influenced by his rural surroundings and is constantly aware of the challenges it faces by urban progress. Firmly rooted in the physical reality of the places he chose, at a moment in time, his paintings are imbued with a luminosity that transcends realism.
