This award-winning portrait of Peter Von Tiesenhausen shows a unique artist with a fierce connection to the land. That connection is present in his work whether it's a painting, mixed media, an installation or a sculpture made of granite or wood. He burns paintings and carves into them. His materials include willow branches, ice and wood, and he often installs the works high up in trees, in the middle of the bush or in open fields, letting nature transform his pieces. Transience is a constant theme. Rather than simply describing nature, his challenge is to evoke the power of nature. Elemental is an intriguing journey into the art and mind of a singular talent.
