Glasgow-based artist Mick Peter transforms imagery derived from fiction, illustration and graphic design into playful installations. His sculptures resemble quick hand drawn sketches which seem to have been cut from the flatness of the paper and dragged into three-dimensional space.

For Pyramid Selling Peter transports us into a cartoon-like illustration realised on a monumental scale and the gallery becomes the site of activities associated with manual labour and with the retail industry.  Peter’s life-size cartoon sketches come alive and populate the environment, whilst sculptures of oversized zips pose as items for sale.

Pyramid Selling is Peter’s most ambitious installation to date, and was conceived for the cavernous space of Tramway in Glasgow.  Its new iteration for Drawing Room is a condensed and intensive version which immerses visitors who unwittingly become active participants in this animated environment.
