Hartwigs artistic fascination lives in the world between visual reality and illusion. His work shows an atmosphere with fragments of color; warm light, cool reflections and sometimes the presence of human figures.
An interpretation of reality.
Many sections of the paintings are rendered in a largely abstract style. When zooming in on the painting’s details, the image falls apart into abstract areas of color.
Besides autonomic paintings, Peter Hartwig made large-scale ceiling and wall paintings, on both independent and commissioned projects with companies as ING Bank and Holland America Line Cruise Ships.
At this moment Peters work is being shipped to China for: 'Exchange China'. Selected by International League of Fine Art Schools. Shaanxi Province Museum, Xi'an, "6th Silk Road International Art Festival, 2019" (07-09), Museum of Art, Qingdao (10-11)
