Modern lithography, etching, silk screen, and painting


Based on traditional printmaking techniques, such as blockprinting, engraving, mezzotint and lithography, Peeter Burgeik (1959) explores in his work the possibilities to comment on the increasing fleetingness of human existence. In the choice of his topics and in the creative processes Burgeik opposes the transitory icons of the Internet era. Both form and content require intensive and long-term version and a direct contact with the matter allows for reflection and contemplation. Peeter's efforts aim at combining Zen and the art of printmaking. Peeter is a mainly self-educated artist (help of Ada Koning, Filip le Roy and Aad Hekker is to be acknowledged though).                                                       (March 2015)
