Peter Macaulay’s joyful pictures are usually inspired by beach and pool-side scenes. The lively, semi-abstract figures are both subtle and erotic. His paintings are filled with rhythmic lines; the colours sing.
Peter Macaulay is perhaps one of Merseyside’s least known, but certainly most mature and gifted artists. In the mid-1990s he participated in the ‘Artists at Work’ programme at the Walker Art Gallery.
