Peter von Tiesenhausen is a settler artist based in rural Treaty 8 territory, in the community of Demmitt, AB. von Tiesenhausen's long-standing multidisciplinary practice staunchly eludes categorization; land art, community-building, steel sculpture, environmental activism, bronze-casting, and wild blueberry propagation equally contribute to a complex synergy: a life lived as art.
Emerging in resonance with the natural cycles of the land he stewards and lives on, von Tiesenhausen's work contains an element urgency - a capacity to demonstrate momentary, precise unities between celestial mechanics and rural common-sense: states in which every droplet of water reflects the sun.
