Peter Demetz is an astonishing wood carving artist who sculpts realistic figures for his clever wall-mounted scenes. The artist uses special lighting and calculated angles in his compositions to manipulate the perceived space. His techniques expand the space to make it seem as if you are looking further into a relief sculpture than actually exists.
Demetz’s figures are pictured in personal scenarios, often nude, looking in a mirror, in the midst of internal reflection. This makes the viewer of the work an intrusive presence, seeing them in their most valuable state.
