PETER FOUCAULT

Artist statement

Peter Foucault creates works on paper, videos, and installations that are fueled by his love of drawing and mark-making. He has created a series of Drawing Projects, which utilize systems developed by the artist that produce complex abstract compositions. At the root of these projects is a constant tension between control and the loss of control. Viewer interactivity plays an integral part in his drawing installations — large-scale artworks in which participants influence the outcome of a drawing that is created by a small robot over the duration of an event or exhibition. His work is concept-driven, and often utilizes objects that reference printmaking and multiplicities.
