Listing Information
This painting somewhat more abstract than many of Peter Trotman's work bringing with it a mischievous element, with it's tiny houses on top of lampposts and a real house sat on a boat complete with chimney - something new each time you look. Go on its there! take a moment to look.
Peter Trotman's current works have a sense of place, but of many places, he is looking for 'Hireth', 'Hirethek' in Cornish or 'Hiraeth' in Welsh. This is a Celtic term meaning 'longing, loneliness, yearning, nostalgia'. 'A homesickness for a past that never existed'. Capturing the universal feeling of being next to the sea, looking out and seeing ships, beautiful on the horizon, close and yet remote, unobtainable identity or expected possibilities, belonging and distance, evidence of people and lives unseen, the known and unknown.

Raised in the harbour town of Falmouth, Cornwall, UK, Peter grew up surrounded by natural beauty juxtaposed with a working port he continues to live in the area, with the sea and ships as a constant presence in the background. He studied in Falmouth, and at university in Exeter, since graduating in Fine Art he has have lived in Aberystwyth, West Wales, and the East End of London before moving back home in 2003. Peter worked contentedly for 13 years with young people with learning and physical disabilities until compulsory redundancy and cutbacks closed the service he was working in. This encouraged a return to his much loved painting which was already resurging with many new and exiting ideas.
