About The Artwork

Seven men lift hollow bombs over their heads; originally a photo of US Air Force trainees exercising on an air base in Nevada. The heat, their mostly bare bodies and their gestures are strong, and the spare flat landscape becomes a site of male sexual energy. In the inset above, a woman sleeps and dreams; are the men her dream? This ambiguity is further heightened by the vast Western American landscape. The desert is an empty environment; I am treating it as a space where anything can happen, a site for my ideas about the attraction of men and women to play out. Black and white paintings have a “documentary” quality to them, as if reporting truthfully, without the distractions of color.

Peter ILLIG is known for his complex paintings that walk a line between post-modern semiotics and traditional illustration. Involved in Denver's art scene, producing thought-provoking oil paintings composed of layered images mixing color with black-and-white. Dubbed by the press as a "neo-pop surrealist," and "one of Denver's best artists." Peter Illig's works are analogies for human emotions and experiences, American psychological landscapes reflecting how we think of several things at once. He layers images borrowed from film, TV, cyberspace, and his own experience like a coded language of symbols to express his ideas and feelings. This search through the stuff of the world, matter and flesh, is inherently erotic. And so is the act of drawing and painting. These meanings and objects intersect and overlap in life, and in Illig's art. Where does one object end and another begin? Where does one idea end and another begin to form? Can theory become visual? These and other questions are presented in Illig's work. Peterillig.com
