Peter Zwaan

For years now Peter Zwaan is working like a mad professor in his studio in The Hague, Holland.
Reshaping the world, questioning our view on nature and the world surrounding us.
His work has an obvious link to artists like Ron Mueck in it´s fabulous techniques but Zwaan´s world is a complete different one from the more biografical works of Mueck.
Zwaan questions the way we look at animals in our world, do we see them as creatures living on this globe with the same rights as us humans or are they merely creatures that have to obey our every wish and still our endless needs.
Human arrogance is a topic of high importance in his work.

all works: polyester, polyurethaan, acryl, hair
