Biography

Timeline

Peter Bergeron attended the Paier Art School in New Haven and studied classes at Central Connecticut College, where he defined his beginning career as a representational painter.
In the 1980s, he became an illustrator with Medical Marketing Media Magazine in Ridgefield, Connecticut. Like the artist James Rosenquist before him, he later began painting large billboards for Patrick Media of hamburgers, beer bottles, and other advertisements, “several of them attracting TV coverage they were so controversial,” according to the artist.
In 1990, he began studying with Frank Covino, learning a very traditional method of painting, starting with under painting, and a building up of glazes, layer upon layer. This method of painting was the Classical Academic Method, reminiscent of the early American landscape painters of the Hudson River School. Bergeron has been inspired by American Hudson River Painter Sanford Gifford celebrated for his luminous landscapes. Bergeron’s paintings often capture dawn and dusk with mist-laden skies. Creating an ethereal glow, the mist envelopes an entire scene and the background of many works gently recedes while the foreground details are very distinct and sharp.
