PETER WATERSCHOOT

PETER WATERSCHOOT

Peter Henry Waterschoot is playing with the buttons of time. Space and time markers are his taboo. The photoworks are a result of ever-consecutive trips, hunting for a heterotopia within the remains of the postwar period of the previous century. Much of the latter ongoing series are characterised by a dreamlike state and a sober, lucid romanticism.The photoworks evoque a meditative gaze and lead the viewer into a different state of mind. there is a recognizable color-palette (varying from copper-brown, bordeaux, gold, forest green, black, deep red, pink, yellowish, purple even ). But Darkness and melancholia are not omnipresent; in his latest work Peter Waterschoot is ‘reaching out towards (blinding) light’.
