Midweek Muse – Peter Carrington

Peter Carrington is a Manchester-based illustrator who blends his interest in science and geometry with natural history and vintage zoological etchings. His work originated from his struggle with dyslexia and his desire to gain knowledge in the aforementioned subjects despite his academic challenges. Accepting that he would never be able to excel in these studies, Peter seeks “to create a visual language of [his] own.”

“I create seemingly scientific drawings, prompting viewers to read them in such a way as to gain knowledge…. These decontextualised images will be viewed in a new light.”
