Peter Foesters Straight Dimensions
PETER FOESTERSI was born in1968 in Belgium and I live in Tongeren. I graduated from art school in Genk in 1992. In the mid-nineties I started painting objects in combination with gesso.
After a break of more than 10 years I started to mould and paint movie scenes using clay. For 5 years now I have been painting in an abstract style. I am always fascinated by the combination of sculpting and painting.Because I work on canvas the material has to be very light. That’s why I use polystyrene. I like to use bright ”fluo” colours combined with black. By using straight lines I try to bring depth in my work, this gives it an extra dimension.
That’s why I call it: straight dimensions. I’m inspired by modern architecture (buildings, bridges, monuments) and modern artists like
Yves Klein, Mondriaan, Hockney, Warhol, Lichtenstein and Johns.Driven by creativity I always want to take things a step further. Never stand still, always take the next step.
For me that’s what art is all about! You can see much more on www.straightdimensions.com , https://www.facebook.com/Straightdimensions/timeline
