Interview with the artist Peter Illig, by Julia Rymer


J: The fragmentation in your work is emblematic of how we as a society have been cordoned off into groups and tribes, and yet we are trying to work together. Are you seeing new themes and imagery show up as related to the “crazy pants” events of the past year?

P: My paintings (and drawings) are often divided into zones, but I use formal elements to bring the various parts together. So they do walk a line between ‘fragmented’ and ‘unified’. It’s a literal way to show the fragmented nature of society and by extension, ourselves, internally. I have so many interests, so many areas I study, that pictorial content comes to me from a lot of sources…
