Peter Denham was born in 1946, at a time when rural farming communities were still largely unaffected by the social and physical developments that were rebuilding most of post-war Britain. Unlike many Naïve artists, however, Peter Denham did not dwell on nostalgic snap-shots of a vague lost childhood. Each intricate painting is part of an ongoing storyline of real events, with real characters weaving their way in and out of an important part of history. Presented with the same Naïve clarity and wry sense of humour which is the personal hallmark of his artwork. Peter is missed by so many people in so many ways but his legacy, in the form of the ABNA, lives on as a reminder to us all, of a very special man.
