Born in England, in 1940 he was familiar with the industrial landscape of northern England at an early age. He first emerged as a painter of stark abstract works, inspired by his early years in the industrial town of Sheffield (England).

He entered the National Gallery School in Melbourne. Graduating in 1965, he went on to teach drawing at the National Gallery of Victoria Art School, until 1967. In the early 1970s, he start paint hard-edged abstractions of dark rectangles (primarily in black). His work is characterized by an intense emotional power of narratives and esoteric symbolism.

He began keeping a dream diary in 1973. Drawing has been central to his practice for his recorded images, with whatever scrap of paper.

His imanigery influenced by earlier movements in art (such as work of Francisco Goya and Abstract Expressionism). By 1977, PETER BOOTH had begun working in figurative and landscape imagery, exploring both directions. In some works, hislandscapes are peopled by strange humanoid figures.

During the 1980s, he began to illustrate flakes of snow drifting over his figures and landscapes alike. Looking to buy his works, you can type
