Peter De Boer is a painter from the Netherlands who works primarily with self produced paint. His paintings express the longing for a return to simplicity and nature: endorsing sustainable living, organic produce and fair trade, while at the same time acknowledging and accepting our cultivated modern surroundings. Presenting serene and dreamy landscapes, filled with detail and specks of light. Recurring elements in Peter de Boer’s work are tents, huts, caravans and treehouses; these places can be associated with protection, survival and safety, but at the same time carry a sense of childhood adventure, curiosity and exploration. The same versatility can be seen in other recurring themes: the icebears, being both endearing and dangerous; and the surf scenes, representing sports and playfulness, but also heightened consciousness and awareness of nature. Peter’s work is highly collectable and he is recognized as an internationally emerging artist to watch.
