Peter Heylands

artist and performer

{ Peter heylands }

Art speaks the language of the soul, a language impossible to translate. Therefore art will always be abstract.
What I am seeking is not the real and not the unreal but rather the subconscious, the mystery of the soul.


It takes time to find the soul behind the skin. No matter what I paint, it always refer back to love and the mystery around it. My art undresses, even if the subject is traditional like portrait. It is my way to find significance in surfaces, and what is a more attractive and challenging surface than the skin around the soul? The body always expresses the spirit whose envelope it is. And for those who can see, the human body offers the richest meaning. Being nude is also the recall to earth.
