Raised in the psychedelic London of the 1960s ignited Peter Stern’s passion for color.
He went on to study music, fine arts, film, photography and design at the fiercely avant garde California Institute of the Arts, where he developed a healthy disregard for the traditional segregations between artistic disciplines and mediums and here he experienced at close hand the technical processes of film, photography and music just before the dawn of the digital era. Stern started experimenting with the science that captures the art and began to explore video as a medium unto itself - the image behind the image and a brand new landscape of color was revealed. He has a natural inclination for searching beyond the standard rhetoric, beyond the other side of something else, beyond a particular state of mind or emotion and into an area that lies outside of what is known. Beyond color. Color Beyond.
