Biography from LewAllen Galleries:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Dutch artist Peter Bremers drew on his travels to create the Icebergs & Paraphernalia and Canyons & Desserts series.  Inspired by a journey to the Antarctic in a deep-sea sailing ship, Bremers did kiln-cast glass sculptures that constitute Icebergs & Paraphernalia and 'concretize' the artist’s recollections of the region’s passing glaciers and swells glistening in dawn sunlight.

Merging undulating wave-like shape with angular holes and arches, these works recall both the fissures of melting glaciers and the unfathomable depths of ice below the visible surface of the sea.  According to the artist, his recently developed Canyons and Deserts series is “inspired by the amazing nature within the United States.”

Characterized by rich earth-hued glass, intricately cut grooves and channels, and jagged forms, the works 'essentialize' and evoke the uniquely austere and awe-inspiring landscape formations of the Southwest.  Using gestures of the hand to approximate the visual effects of erosion and stratification, he creates with the series a dynamic contrast between human and geologic time.

Bremers was born in 1957 in Maastricht, The Netherlands, where he studied sculpture at the University of Fine Arts from 1976 to 1980, and three-dimensional design at the Jan van Eyck Academie from 1986 to 1988.  Searching for suitable ways of realizing his artistic ideas, he at first worked with a wide range of materials, including glass, plastic, steel and stone.

In 1989, he attended a course given by Lino Tagliapietra at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, but the strongest impetus to turn to glass as his ideal material had come three years earlier, during a workshop held at the Jan van Eyck Academie by the senior Dutch glass artist A.D. Copier (1901-1991).

Bremers's work is featured in the public collections of Boymans van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam, The Netherlands; Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, The Netherlands and National Glassmuseum in Leerdam, The Netherlands.
