Canadian Sculptures' Society

Peter Alexander Por

Artist Statement

In my work I am articulating or delineating my interpretation of the world, of life, which results in a sense of being true to myself.

The sculptures, installation projects and other works are direct and powerful, emblematic, and perceptual responses, derived from my dialogue with the intriguing complexities of life.
