Peter Leif Schelle-Jækel


Peter Leif Schelle-Jækel`s recent works are rooted in the self-organization of the universe, inspired by I. Pregogines (Nobel Prize in 1977).: "Order out of Chaos" 1985, and The artist raises question of forms found in living and not-living matter.

The sculptures are constructed in a swift acute process evoking a volatile outcome, revealing an unexpected high sensibility to minute manipulative variations during casting, displaying similarities to open dissipative systems and implying potential transitions to the forms we call life.

The production, initiating with philosophy, religion, and psychology, leading to structures connecting life and the phenomena of the universe.

Quote:
The museum keeper Bjarne Jørnæs from Thorvaldsen Museum wrote in his preface to the exhibition in Paris: “…

" Conscious or subconscious - some of the classic-surrealistic iconographic signs show up with Peter Leif. The torso, the metronome, the amoeba shape. Motifs are defragmented, the individuality of figures are dissolved.

Never the less it is too simple to just to categorize Peter Leif as a surrealist. It might fit the earlier works and collages , but in the later, more freely painted pictures, other elements are found. First of all the colours are getting more intense, and the brushwork less smooth. The picture can be divided in two parts of different sizes apparently without related themes. …

The style of in the art of Peter Leif goes from the colouristic fine collages, via the “surrealistic” pictures of bodies or torsos to the just mentioned more freely painted pictures. .. Peter Leif’s pictures are dealing with mutilation, lack of contact, aggression and sexuality. In the later works, with their warmer colours and less violent themes, perhaps a more harmonic mood is emerging."
