With their visible homage to the Old Masters, Peebles’s mezzotints reinterpret the traditional genre of still life through the dark prism of a contemporary, surrealist vision. The overall richness of detail, the contrasting chiaroscuro, and the impenetrable blackness of the backgrounds demonstrate Peebles’s reputation as the internationally-renowned master of mezzotint, one of the most complex and labour-intensive processes within the sphere of intaglio printmaking. Peebles's mezzotints are a desirable -- and dramatic -- addition to the collections of emerging and established connoisseurs of graphics alike.
