totem plate by Peter Schwartz

Thanks to Peter Schwartz for this week’s art, totem plate. Here is what he has to say about its creation:

When I was painting ‘totem plate’ I was very interested in texture and bodies. The simple, minimalist figure against a textural background illuminated by a circle of light can be a symbol of many things: endurance, hope, protection. A clear definition of the totem plate and its origins is not available at this time.

  1. i like the sense-feeling that there are images and shapes and things within this work. it’s as if there is an essence that i can almost make out. that it makes sense in a way i have yet to find and define. cool.

  2. Iconic and DEEP. Powerful work, thanks for this Peter!
