Peter Jansen (1956) studied Physics and Philosophy at the university.
For a number of years he worked as a guide, accompanying groups on survival and canoe trips, after which he dedicated his live entirely to the arts.
Based on his ideas on transposition and movement the artist Peter Jansen uses shapes of the human body to create energetic spaces.
In his earlier works he focused on open spaces, created almost free of matter and weight.
In his recent sculptures he captures sequences of human movements in space and time, in a single frame.
