Peter Drake

Peter Drake’s work has been featured in 26 Solo exhibitions to date with works included in the collections of the Whitney Museum, Phoenix Museum of Art, MOCA LA, The Museum of Modern Art in Mexico City and the L.A. County Museum of Art among others.

Articles and reviews of his work have appeared in Art in America, Art New England, Flash Art, Interview Magazine, The New York Times, Art & Antiques, Time Out and ARTnews. He has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards including a fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts and a National Endowment for the Arts award.

In December of 2012 Drake completed a large-scale triptych for the new Eaton Global Headquarters in Cleveland and has been commissioned by MTA Arts For Transit to create site-specific public art for the Long Island Rail Road Massapequa Station, Massapequa New York. The project features 18 glass windows and 5 ceramic/glass mosaics throughout the train station measuring 436 square feet of artwork. MTA Arts For Transit is among the nation's largest public art programs and covers the Metropolitan NYC area.

Recent 2012 exhibitions include a solo show at Linda Warren Projects, Chicago and group shows at the Phoenix Art Museum, the World Financial Center in Shanghai, China and in Leipzig, Germany.

Drake is an active visiting artist lecturer at museums and colleges, most recently at Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University in Istanbul. In 2010 Drake was named Dean of Academics Affairs at The New York Academy of Art, a figurative MFA program in Manhattan. Additionally he served as a curator for The Drawing Center in New York City and for two years he wrote art reviews for Flash Art Magazine.

Although predominately a painter, Drake recently has expanded his art into video and animation saying, “ In effect I have always thought of my work cinematically, I set the stage and then fill it with props and actors so with video it feels like I’m still painting, just in time and space.”

Peter Drake lives and works in Manhattan and is represented by Linda Warren Projects, Chicago.

The New York Academy of Art presents The Big Picture, curated by Peter Drake.

Featuring Vincent Desiderio, Eric Fischl, Neo Rauch, Jenny Saville and Mark Tansey, the exhibition examines the use of scale in contemporary figurative painting and features out-sized work, the largest measuring 38 feet long. The Big Picture artists, all active in the Academy’s community as critics, teachers or mentors, often use monumentality to explore their ideas.

The Big Picture is curated by Peter Drake, Dean of Academic Affairs and organized by Elizabeth Hobson, Director of Exhibitions.

The Big Picture is generously sponsored by Cadogan Tate Fine Art.

January 28 - March 2, 2014
