Peter Baksa' paintings shown herein illustrate a chronology of his works starting at age 11 forward. Baksa utilizes a geometric math model he developed to underpin the composition of each painting before it is started. He uses charcoal to layout the geometry before applying oils. After spending many years, first at the Art Institute, studying the composition technique of the masters, he expanded his knowledge base further experimenting and analyzing a different group of painters while living in Paris and spending 100's of hours at the Louvre. Simply put; his composition technique guides the eye to the place where the artist wants it to rest in a consistent and proactive manner.
Baksa uses special lenses and aperture settings taking ordinary household objects and treatments like wine glasses - floor treatments and the like to create amazing works of art. These pieces can be purchased at his gallery showings. They are all mounted on aluminum foundations and covered in plexiglass. These settings make the art everlasting pieces and also create an interesting back-lit quality that are his signature treatment. These works, when viewed with the naked eye appear to glow as if to have a back-lit light source. This is the result of a combination of specific aperture and shutter settings that Baksa uses to create this effect.
Baksa uses a minimalist approach and builds everything from scratch using solid pieces of Mahogany and Cherrywood treatments intermixed with brushed stainless to accent and frame the woods. The idea that these particular species of wood darken and get richer with time inspires their use.
Baksa' firm has won Historic preservation awards for their work in this genre of development. Baksa seeks out projects whereas the exterior of a historic structure warrants saving. He then removes all internal walls and rebuilds from the inside out. The net result is a stunning rehabilitated historic exterior with contemporary interior treatments.
