Peter Luty is a painter and printmaker who began his professional career as an architect and now concentrates on the representation and interpretation of buildings, old and new. The buildings in his paintings, drawings and original prints are exemplars of their type, some major buildings by modern or historic architects, some simple vernacular buildings of unknown provenance. Peter Luty is interested in the formal geometry of architectural elevations, in spaces, shapes and forms, in the textures of building materials, the effects of light and colour, in how buildings change over their lifetime and in how they relate to other buildings and their surroundings through reflection, shadow and pattern.
Peter Luty is a member of Greenwich Printmakers Association. His work is on display at the gallery, 1a Greenwich Market, London SE10 9HZ (020 8858 1569)
Peter Luty was born and educated in Yorkshire, received his architectural degree from Edinburgh University and worked in Cambridge and London before setting up his own architectural practice in Greenwich in 1980, where he lived for many years. His studio remains in south east London.
