Peter Riss

My spatial works and installations comment on the dual nature of mankind. The apparent natural order is disrupted by the organic, raw shapes of stuffed animals-showing horns and bones. The natural upsets the culturally constructed order. The contrast between smooth and raw, order and chaos, culture and nature is inherent to mankind. We all carry a ‘dark side'’ within ourselves. My sculptures represent this tension between co-existing inner forces that clash and complement each other at the same time.
