The Dylan Thomas Centre

Peter Finnemore presented several pieces inspired by the process of creativity including a shed, stating that “sheds are synonymous with creativity, Dylan Thomas wrote his poetry in a shed, Mahler wrote his compositions in a shed and Wittgenstein conceived much of his philosophical thought in a shed. Thus the space within the shed becomes a metaphor for the creative mind”.

He locates his artpractice within and around visual explorations on the themes of Welsh identity; it’s history, culture and landscape and it’s psychological and spiritual nuances.

His further pieces for the exhibition related to religious iconography aswell as cultural icons and the poetical inspiration of the landscape.
