DISCOVER PETER HIEMSTRA

The fantastic ceramic figures of Peter Hiemstra (1954) often elicit a smile to the viewer. They resemble family memebers of bears, rabbits and dogs. They usually stand upright, wear colorful clothes and collect attributes which blurs the line between humans and animals. At a second glance the figures seem not so amiable and innocent as imagined. A dark layer beneath becomes visible. Do these animals imitate humans? Or are they people who behave like animals?

With his work Peter Hiemstra not only poses questions on the behavior, beliefs and worldview of humanity but he also ridicules it. Further inspiration he finds in great stories, poetry or rural landscape in which he lives. But mainly he invents the world while working.

Peter Hiemstra studied at the Academy Minerva Groningen, The Netherlands.
