Colin Peile

My work primarily deals with social and environmental themes. I try to draw attention to these concerns sometimes explicitly but often in subtle and whimsical ways.  

For 20 years until 2000 I worked mainly in the welfare field.  From 2000 to 2007 my main work was as an organic farmer. 

 

I painted throughout this time but particularly from 2000 devoting one or two days a week. 

 

From 2007 onwards my other time has been devoted to several community projects (a local community garden, a reconciliation action group and a worker cooperative selling organic produce)  these community activities have been important for me to keep my painting grounded and connected to current issues and concerns.
