About Pete Ashton

I’m an artist based in Birmingham in the North West of Europe. My work centres on cameras as post-photographic data-capture devices with an interest in realising their output through mechanical/human gesture.

After a bit of a break I’ve started blogging again at blog.peteashton.com where I occasionally document my art process.

Alongside this formal portfolio site, I record the process of my work on Github where you can find documentation and, where relevant, source materials and code.

I’ve been a practicing artist since 2013 after four decades of slowly coming to the conclusion I might be an artist.

New work for 2017

Throughout 2017 I will be producing a new body of work culminating in a solo show in November.
