Peter Schacht is a Kitchener-based illustrator and visual artist whose elongated figures set his narratives in motion. (Above: Around About Life, acrylic & oil on hand carved wood, 20 1/2 x 12 1/4)
He works to “share and reveal how people are connected to one another in everyday living.” (Above: Naturally Connected / Below: Saving Shallow Waters – all works are oil & acrylic on hand carved wood)
The positioning and size of each subject is the key. They set my stories in motion, always creating a feeling of joy within me as I shape and place them. Their bodies are stylistically exaggerated in order to create wonder, as well as expand the negative spaces that surround them. – Artist Statement
