Peter Ainsworth is an artist and lecturer based in London, UK. Known for his photography, Ainsworth also employs elements of performance, sculpture, video and print in the realisation of his work.
His recent work concentrates on the relationship between inorganic and organic structures as a way to explore how we see objects and indeed to inquire into a world where the human is not central to relations between things. He examines these concerns with reference to architectural forms and in particular to spaces that are often overlooked, areas that are on the peripheries of urban environments but without which the city would not fit together.
Winner of the 2010 Converse/ Dazed and Confused Emerging Artist Award Ainsworth has recently shown in “State of the Art Photography” NRW Forum Dusseldorf, “Uncommon Ground” at Flowers East and “At the edge of Logic”, Platforma Reformer, Lisbon. His first London Solo show ‘Unsounded surplus’ at George and Jorgen Gallery, London.
