Waddington's Auction House Biography and Notes
Peter Aspell was one of Canada's finest post-war colourists, emerging from a group of Vancouver painters as a defiant and unique voice. Focussing primarily on portraiture and the figure during a time when many painters were preoccupied with abstraction, and heavily informed by symbolism, mythology, and historical reference, Aspell emphatically explored the bounds of expressive painting. "Ancient Landscape with Fetish Figure,Á 1989, is an exceptional example of the artist's feverish approach, depicting pictographic figures blurring into a mythic landscape. The palette recalls oranges and ochres, clay and rock illuminated by the flicker of a fire or the burn of the sun below the horizon. Long red arms and a pair of strange green pipes splay across the right of the image, while a small figure in all-white floats nearby. It's difficult to discern what is a person and what is a totem carving, or which figure is meant to be the fetish of the title: the bodies all seem to emerge from the uneasy ground. Aspell's mythologies here seem chiselled straight out of the stone wall.
