Peter Illig is originally from New York, and studied at Buffalo State College and University of Colorado, Denver. He has been an artist and teacher in Colorado for 30 years. Currently represented by Plus+Gallery in Denver, he has been a member of artist co-ops such as Pirate Contemporary Art and Spark Gallery. His shows have numerous reviews, and his work has been selected for various ‘Best of Colorado’ shows over the years, and is found in many personal and corporate collections.
Peter Illig’s paintings are analogies for human emotions and experiences — American psychological landscapes — reflecting how we think of several things at once. He layers images borrowed from film, TV and cyberspace and his own experience like a coded language of symbols to express ideas and feelings.
