Over the years ecological concerns have loomed large in Peter Layton’s work.  In the late 1960’s he exhibited a group of large multi media installations entitled ‘Please keep off the Grass’ and he continues to be preoccupied by these ever more pressing issues.

The velvety fiery reds and smoky blacks evoke the bubbing eruptions of our inner earth.   With more than 200 active volcanoes, Iceland alone has produced one third of all lava discharges around the world in the last 500 years; nature showing its teeth, and indeed biting back!
