Peter Warren- Bonsai
Natural Flux is the brain child of Peter Warren, an internationally renowned bonsai artist based in London who spent six years training in the traditional manner as an apprentice to a Japanese bonsai master. Since completing his studies, Peter has travelled far and wide teaching and working with bonsai collectors and enthusiasts across the globe. Bonsai which have been created in some part by Peter, although belonging to clients, have been displayed at the highest level exhibitions in Japan, the US and Europe.
Despite the traditional nature of his training, Peter has been searching for a more artistic outlet and after many years of thought and gathering further experiences, he conceived the idea of displaying bonsai in a contemporary way with the involvement of a number of artists from other fields many of whom are approaching bonsai for the first time.
Natural Flux is the debut solo exhibition for an artist who has rarely exhibited his own trees and will give us an insight into his aesthetic and ideas regarding how bonsai and the contemporary world can be combined. It is an attempt to combine the traditional oriental practice with contemporary western art, a natural progression for an artist with his pedigree.
