Peter Illig is originally from New York and has been an artist and teacher in Colorado for over 30 years. He is formerly represented by Plus+Gallery in Denver and has been a member of artist co-ops such as Pirate Contemporary Art and Spark Gallery. His work has been selected for numerous ‘Best of Colorado’ shows over the years, and is found in many personal and corporate art collections.
Peter Illig’s paintings are analogies for human emotions and experiences – American psychological landscapes – reflecting how we think of several things at once. He layers images borrowed from film, TV and cyberspace and his own experience like a coded cultural language of symbols to express his ideas and feelings.
