I paint cities at night and fantasy nocturnal landscapes
I have always painted cities, even in my landscapes there has always been a human construction, what interests me is the relationship between man and nature, the place that human constructions take in the environment
My paintings with landscapes are a search for a balance between man and nature, the cities that I represent must always integrate as well as possible to landscapes, they are the continuation
They are made of stones and wood, they are part of nature, contrary to what we often see with the present towns that replace nature, which erases it to settle in its place
The ecological problems encountered at present are surely due to the fact that man may have placed it above nature as if it did not exist, without taking account of the balances necessary for its functioning over the long term
My landscapes is a bit of a search for harmony between the human infrastructure and the nature from which it springs, the search for a perfect balance, but the more I paint landscapes the more I realize that there is An infinity of possible equilibria
Marc Peltzer is a French artist born in 1962 in Saint Germain en Laye, France.
The urge to paint came to him toward the age of 20, as he wanted to follow the example of his father. Very quickly he got hooked. Practice and experience allowed him, step by step, to find his own technique. His first exhibition took place in 1987 at the Artist Show of Suresnes. Then, exhibitions followed in France and the USA. He quickly became a virtuoso of the glazing technique. Marc Peltzer’s personal touch is in his inspiration. Between futuristic and medieval visions, we veer between two worlds. Influenced by the Flemish painters as for colors, light and atmospheres, his subjects are the cities which plunge the audience into a world close to either François Villon or Victor Hugo. He charms with his so personal universe, close to fantasy, where you would like to get lost, and where the mere presence of a cat could disturb your wandering.
