Peter von Tiesenhausen is a multi-media Canadian artist whose work has lead him through journeys both real and imagined. Based in the Alberta Peace country, Demmitt specifically, he has exhibited across Canada, in Europe and the United States in public galleries and throughout the landscape. His practice has grown from landscape painting to installation, sculpture, performance and from simple media to complex combinations of media and multifaceted collaborations. He claims copyright on his land as an artwork. His work often deals with the ideas of time, life, voyage, death, spirit, nature and humanity. There is a strong pursuit of sustainability often evident in the work and an attempt to understand time and substance from a variety of perspectives.
