Peter has created a unique range of artwork using a method developed by Salvador Dalí: The Paranoiac Critical method.

The Paranoiac Critical method was a sensibility, or way of perceiving reality that was developed by Salvador Dalí. It was defined by Dalí himself as "irrational knowledge" based on a "delirium of interpretation". More simply put, it was a process by which the artist found new and unique ways to view the world around him. It is the ability of the artist or the viewer to perceive multiple images within the same configuration.

Peter uses this method to create abstract drawings and paintings of what lies beneath the facade of the world and city that we know. They are the Lost Souls of London. The end result is a unique blend of lines, creatures, shapes and shadows. As Dalí himself once said: Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision...
