Peter McFarlane received a BFA from York University in 1982 and went on to the Banff Centre for a year on a scholarship. He has also received grants from the Ontario Arts Council and from the Canada Council Ark Bank for purchase.
A conceptually based sculptor and installation artist, Peter uses recycled metal from domestic, utilitarian and high tech sources in his assemblage, ready mades and found object works of art.
He has exhibited widely in both commercial and public galleries over the last two decades and his work is in many private collections throughout North America.
Peter lives and works on Salt Spring and can sometimes be heard playing bass in a band.
