Peter Barnitz

Artist Statement Submitted 2019

As a multi-media artist my work responds to the power and expression of life, nature, gravity, emotion and movement. The works consist of mixed media paintings and constructions using a personal vocabulary of line, gestural marks, drips, color, texture and found objects. Through the use of these elements, I simplify form to create neutral experiences intended to generate both thoughtful and thoughtless contemplation, which correspond to a sense of harmony with the world and oneself. In a world filled with the constant bombardment of technology, distraction and confrontation, we must all find a place of peace and compromise. The wide variety of subject matter in my artwork stems from a continuous and honest investigation into our ever changing changing world.
