Whether it is an old rusted piece of mining equipment, or a jumble of electrical wires in an alleyway, Peggy finds beauty in the overlooked, mundane scenes found in large cities and small towns. In her paintings of industrial, mechanical, and electrical subjects, she explores the themes of human interconnectedness, mankind’s creations versus Nature, and our dependence on the power grid. Peggy also finds inspiration in the impermanence of ‘permanent’ human installations, such as buildings, statuary and mining equipment.
