About the work

What dogs really think… possibly. It’s a drawing for a sculpture, or perhaps for a sculpture with a waggy tail.

About the artist:



Born Berlin, Mick Peter lives and works in Glasgow. Graduated from Ruskin School of Fine Art, Oxford and Glasgow School of Art.

Mick Peter’s playful installations incorporate imagery influenced by illustration and commercial art. His sculptures are often enlarged drawings, used to animate the narrative of his exhibitions which satirise the symbols of power and authority as well as art making itself.
