My Fotos and Paintings are Love Stories

by Peter Seelig
 

My fotos and paintings are love stories.
They are the music of my eyes and the colors of my ears.

“You would like to see more, where hermetic boundaries of signs have their limits and start to try to
interview them“ (Maria Männig)

“By luxurious digital posttreatment he reaches the alienation of the material which is accompanied by an estrangement of the originally photographed object. The reality in its deformed shape wins distance, coagulates to a visual concentrate, in the felt becomes visible.“ (Maria Männig)

“The relinquishing of man in music and dance, in colour and painting, in rhythmic movement and
swinging lines constitutes the theme of Peter Seelig’s work. He circuits his subject in drawings and
paintings obsessively. Figures and faces allure in an expressive decidedly modern picture language
presence.” (Prof.Ulrich Gansert)

“In his painting the human form acquires a sketch like forcefulness. In a picture group one linear
formulation dominates against a black background. Symbols of elementary simplicity emerge. The
lines are like simultaneously those in a test arrangement , the tracks of racing electrons, becoming
visible is a black eternity, and real figures of Lillith or the flowers for Alice. Strange spirals or the form of an angel flying through the dark room.” (Prof.Ulrich Gansert)

“Peter Seelig’s artistic work grows out of a debate with modern art and a wide range of interests
including music, theatre, ballet and literature. His lovely Vienna atelier apartment is full of books.
Numerous visits to Switzerland and France, where in 1968 he experienced the enthusiasm of the
students in Paris, belong to his personal biography. In philosophy, this sphere of positive energy
would be described as Dionysian. The presentation of this possibility of human being is the program
of his artistic work.” (Prof.Ulrich Gansert)

    I love how Peter combines art, theatre, dance and music in everything he does. His art can be seen, heard, read and felt. Music to the eyes 🙂
