Peter Prendergast was born in 1946, at Abertridwr, South Wales. One of twins, he was brought up in a family of coal miners who were used to hard work. His parents hoped that he would not have to follow in his fatherâ€™s footsteps to the coal mines.
The starting point for Peter Prendergastâ€™s work is drawing directly from the landscape. He spends long periods working vigorously in front of a particular landscape.
One of his characteristics is starting on one piece of paper and then adding more pieces to record the space, as in his study of Penrhyn Quarry.
Peter Prendergast also draws figures. Life drawing has been a strong tradition in fine art and he developed his skills during his period at Slade College.
Prendergast responds to figures in a way very similar to the way he responds to landscape- with energy and expression.
