Gord Peteran

Gord Peteran is a sculptor who operates on, in or often near the territory of furniture. He has been referred to as the Bugatti of contemporary design, the undertaker of craft and the conceptual sniper of the furniture form. "In Gord Peteran's workshop, mute household objects are made to spill their secrets as they evolve into something else. A fine cabinetmaker as well as conceptual artist, Peteran is the Frankenstein of furniture. In his wickedly subversive hands, a chair, a clock a table are re-imagined into intriguing evocations of their former selves." Meg McConahey
