Born in 1953, in China, Henry Peeters has captured the colors, light, and texture in his impressionist paintings. The landscapes are delicately palette knifed onto the canvas adding rich depth to the composition.
Peeter's technique, in which the palette knife is used in lieu of the brush, is all the more interesting when you examine the levels of built up oil paint on various segments of the painting. From the multi-dimensionality of the flowers and foliage, to the sparse flatness of the light blue sky, with soft summer clouds, Peeters provides us with a refreshing and new vision of the modern world.
Henry Peeters stands apart from today's Impressionist painters with his unique handling of light and shadow. His sensibilities in color and composition are evident of his utmost achievement and ability. Drawing from both eastern and western cultures, Peeters provides us with a refreshing and new insight towards the world we live in. He creates an almost ideal setting for the viewer to relax.
Peeters paints mostly from memory and emotion. His landscapes are places that can only be visited in the mind, since they are blends of the real and imaginary.
