Welcome to the blog of Peter Purcell Spence, humanist, anti-theist, naturalist, I’m a contemporary fine-artist, living in France and working in a broadly ‘allegorical’ style. I’m primarily concerned with justice, though not in an ‘eye for an eye’ sense. My gallery is here

I guess what I do might be termed ‘narrative’, I think that there is a place for a new look at allegorical painting when all around people are looking to give value to their lives by finding their ‘roots’. Allegory can help in this search as layers of the ‘onion of life’ are peeled off and some semblances of truth, relevant to the painter’s/viewer’s life are gradually revealed.

I aim to have something interesting to say now and again but I paint a lot, often there aren’t enough hours left in the day to write here.

Comments are turned off for now due to spam and deranged trolls.

  1. Hi Lizzie, thought that I’d responded to you, I aim to have exhibitions in the future but there is no point in having them in rural France. I have a bigger plan long-term.

  2. I really enjoyed looking at all your art work, Pete. There are so many stunning pieces. The elephant is beautiful and your nude drawings and shapes are stunning. I really liked the bell as it has a haunting quality for me. Are you having any exhibitions? I think that would be great to go to.
    Love Lizzie X
