New York, Manhattan, Madison Avenue, 100 x 100 cm , 2014 by Peter Meijer

Peter Meijer

'T Waar, GRONINGEN - Holland


For Peter Meijer the challenge is always the same: to create an equivalent in image, form and colour for the emotions and impressions which everyday reality summons up in him.
The conflict between the individual act of painting and the fickle, banal community invokes a restlessness which Meijer transmutes into images, which in turn evoke the same vehemence and emotions as life itself. His paintings are built up of colour fields and lines on a white ground.
The ground often remains visible and gives the painting depth and relief. The act of painting is an intuitive unpremeditated process which exploits the collective experience of all his previous work.
