Behind Closed Doors Pete Hawkins

"Behind Closed Doors takes Pete’s process of painting on found materials forward another step: it features miniature modern fables on antique doors. Each painting possesses the slightly macabre undercurrent present in both Pete’s work and the most memorable folktales from one’s childhood. Married to the possibility a door represents, the pieces become potent fetishes representing opportunities taken or missed."
