GLOBAL ART MAGAZIN ABOUT PETER BACKHAUS
Painting is poetry without words. Instead of words, the painter makes poems with colors. This applies to him more than to any other artist, who emigrated from Germany to Sweden at a young age and has since been inspired by the bright, clear, cool light of the North, which is mysteriously charged by the magicak glare for the Northern Lights during the cold nights. The abstract painter moves like a pilot in the immeasurable sea of colors. He explores the shallows and hidden reefs below sea level. In his paintings one believes to feel the spray that is whirled up behind the fast ships.
