Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Peter Jansen















Peter Jansen (1956) studied Physics and Philosophy at the university.
For a number of years he worked as a guide, accompanying groups on survival and canoe trips, after which he dedicated his live entirely to the arts.
Based on his ideas on transposition and movement the artist Peter Jansen uses shapes of the human body to create energetic spaces.
In his earlier works he focused on open spaces, created almost free of matter and weight.
In his recent sculptures he captures sequences of human movements in space and time, in a single frame.

"It was a privilege and a glorified ego massage!"
Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, on being painted by Felicity Gill.
"It captures the man's quizzical expression exactly... she has done him proud."
Lucy Hodges, THE INDEPENDENT on Boris Johnson
``We're starting to see a lot of younger artists and they really are bringing in new, edgier work'' said Leiper``People like to see how other people perceive them. '' Highlighting the move toward less conventional portraits, Leiper said, is the Johnson piece, which portrays the mayor seated in a deck chair holding a coffee cup, an image she described as ``angelic.''
