Peter Demetz is an Italian sculptor. Born in 1969
It is often noted that the work of Peter Demetz is the meeting point of painting and sculpture. It can’t be considered as just a sculpture, since the artist prefers to include the viewer's point of view as an important element of the overall design, and not a painting, because his works have volume and depth. In Peter’s creations the rules of perspective are geometrically imperfect, and the parameters and ratios of color and light are of great importance.
The artist creates not just sculptures with which the observer interacts and establishes an emotional connection, but creates human figures (very realistic), already in their own space, with which the viewer must also establish an indirect connection.
The viewer must become an unnoticed observer. This is an interesting psychological game that makes you think about spying on someone who is in front of his works. Not a single figure of Demetz "looks" at the viewer. The poses of the characters and their relationship with space convey all the emotions that the author wanted to reflect.
Plots are often depicted from behind as the author attempts to maintain a sense of privacy. There is never eye contact between the subject and the observer - this gives the impression that the figures are locked in their own world, they are aware that they are being observed, but leave an empty space between themselves and the observer.
