Peter Krausz | (No) Man’s Land
Ottawa School of Art Gallery – Orleans Campus
Man’s Land focuses on our harmonious connection with nature, while No Man’s Land focuses on the dead zone that divides a country and appears clearly in satellite imagery.
Krausz creates Man’s Land, these meditative landscapes, using an ancient painting technique called secco. Working with raw pigments suspended in an egg-based emulsion and applied to a dry surface, he creates remarkable colours that seem to suspend light over the paintings, illuminating the landscapes and casting deep shadows that draw the viewer in. While No Man’s Land is painted in oil paints and tar, giving the land deep tones and textures.
Romanian-born, Peter Krausz, studied at the Bucharest Academy of Fine Arts but has called Montreal home since 1970. He is a tenured professor at the Université de Montréal. He has participated in many solo and group exhibitions in Quebec and throughout Canada, the United States and Europe. His works are part of private and public collections such as the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, The Jewish Museum in New York and many others.
