Biographical Information
Peter von Tiesenhausen ~ [b.1959] Canadian RCA
see artist's website tiesenhausen.net

Peter von Tiesenhausen is a settler artist based in rural Treaty 8 territory, in the community of Demmitt, AB. von Tiesenhausen's long-standing multidisciplinary practice staunchly eludes categorization; land art, community-building, steel sculpture, environmental activism, bronze-casting, and wild blueberry propagation equally contribute to a complex synergy: a life lived as art.
Emerging in resonance with the natural cycles of the land he stewards and lives on, von Tiesenhausen's work contains an elemental urgency—a capacity to demonstrate momentary, precise unities between celestial mechanics and rural common sense: states in which every droplet of water reflects the sun.
