Peter Land is a painter, draughtsman, sculptor and video artist. His creative work can be summarised as an ongoing performance charged with elements of the grotesque. His sense of humour and objective viewpoint are unmistakeable. His works often radiate both anxiety and abandonment. The innocent and the terrifying rub shoulders here and acquire an almost metaphysical dimension. The impression is of strange events emerging from the labyrinth of memory. But memories in Land’s case are not a matter of accurate representation of past events but rather of mental constructs lying somewhere between the true happening and its interpretation. His watercolours range from dark, compact colour scales to glowingly delicate tones. The idyllic is annihilated with the approach of darkness. As with absurd theatre Land spins tales in which the paradoxical is a recurring element in human existence.
