I create renditions of fantasy trees, stylized nudes, birds and other subject matter, that capture my imagination. Most of my artwork is small in size.

Fine Art Photographer based in Red Hook Brooklyn working in Digital and Analog film medium from
35mm to 8x10 film with an emphasis on night time imagery and provocative interpretations of
contemporary society and our place in it.
I'm currently working with found images primarily from sixties and seventies pictorial magazines that I interrupt with over-printed digital drawings and words which introduces a layer of commentary, free association or disruption.
Work includes oil and sculpture; themes gravitate toward landscapes, nature and natural
phenomena. Recent work: "Bewilderness", an outdoor art installation in a pine forest which focuses
on the tree as metaphor for non-human "other".
From the New York Times:
"Peter J. Ketchum knows how to get the viewer's
attention. Shown widely around the country, his
pictures commingle colors, situations,
commentary and mediums in a manner that is
provocative, funny and to the point."
A personal look at a mothers art work over the past 10 years. Each painting and sculpture represents the real story behind motherhood and is expressed profoundly through making art and balancing all. Mother, career and being an artist.
My work deals with alienation, gender politics and identity through a displaced female body. Acting as a transcendental device, the body is a tool in various mediums, such as performance and sculpture, video, installation and drawing.
