Peter Hess Biography
Originally from the Netherlands, I’ve been in Los Angeles making art for many years. Art has occupied me from my earliest recollection. As a youngster, I would travel to the public library, return with 10 art books, devour them, then return for 10 more. Though I never had any formal training, I educated myself through visits to museums and galleries, and, of course, by doing the work. I soon learned that every artist has to invent and reinvent painting for themselves. The piece included here represents the paintings I call “Woodworks.” They utilize imagery of wood — planks, boards, timbers, etc. Once-living things which have been extinguished and pressed into a second life of utilitarian service. It is the stuff that surrounds
us from cradle to coffin. Examined in this light, my pictures take on aspects of the human journey. Each of us gathered together, planks among planks.
