The freedom of free-form color and design defines abstract painting
Instead of relying on reality and the visible world, abstract painting comes from the unpredictable and ever changing emotions and state of consciousness of the artist.
This allows the artist total creative freedom where they can set free their imagination and feelings and implement them in colors and shapes on the canvas.
In abstract painting the artist is free from the constraints of real world color schemes or the laws of light and shadow, and so the corresponding worlds of free form color and shape that arise solely from their imagination and feeling, become abstract works.
Peter has himself discovered abstract painting and loves the freedom it gives him to create his own worlds of shape and color. His artistic career was initially influenced by traditional works based on realism, but later he began to experiment with color and shape in a more surrealist manner, before he finally realized his great creativity through true abstract painting.
The idea of abstract painting runs like a strong thread through Peter's work. His paintings are mostly powerful and full of intense colors, as his piece “Your Way XXXL 1”, 250cm x 250cm, clearly demonstrates. This large and very energetic painting hasn't been bound or constricted by the rules of the real world, it is only from the imagination of the artist that we get this truly original and independent work.
