Peter Lik – Art Review

"The Ghost"

"The Ghost"

For as much time as I have spent in San Diego throughout my life, I still always manage to find some little gem that I was unaware of before.  My latest discovery occured upon walking through the streets of Downtown La Jolla.  Out enjoying a stroll under the stars and comfortable temperature of the weather, we approached something that vibrantly stood out from a window.  Halting in front of it, beautiful landscape pictures caught our eyes and drew us in. 

The art gallery belonged to master photographer, Peter Lik.  He is a self-taught artist that started off in Australia and expanded his work throughout the world.  25 years worth of work and counting, Lik has earned many awards.  In his artwork he captures nature in some ways I have never seen a photographer capable of doing before.  It is amazing how he is able to capture the lighting and colors of his subjects so vividly.  The photographs are sold in huge panoramic sizes, ranging from $3,000- $8,000.  Nothing I could ever afford, but they’re nice to look at none the less.  The most incredible thing about his photogrpahs however that I have not yet mentioned, is the detail he is able to capture.  I have never seen a more clear picture then when I was standing in front of his work.  In one particular piece of a snowy forest, “Sunlit Birches”, the sun’s rays were captured so clearly, and the detail was so fine I could see the glisten of the blanket of snow. I felt as if I was standing in the forest myself.

Wheter you are into photography or not, Peter Lik’s work is definately worth being checked out, and experienced.  You can take the easy way out and look his stuff up online, which even then you will see the beauty of his work, but to fully appreciate his work, you need to be standing in front of one.

    Oh come on Peter Lik is ok generic images and great marketing. This is an artist who’s ads for sales reps prefers time-share sale people to art knowledgeable ones. It is a scam and the secondary market for his “art” confirms this.
