I would like to say thanks to all my collectors and the people who support me.
Thru my adventurous world travels, I have managed to do many a job, but none gives me as much satisfaction as being an artist. To express myself and create with passion, while being able to positively touch and influence as many people as possible, is more than any job has ever given me, and it is the deep connection people have with my work that inspires me to push harder. To paint what is in my heart and with the love of creativity, is a challenge and that is why I love it so much, if it came easy, I would not have the drive and passion to push further, and with out you, I would not have a sense of belonging with my work.
An ordinary man sees everything as a blessing or a curse.
A warrior sees everything as a challenge
Australian born artist, Pete Tillack was drawn on an adventurous seven-year trek, which took him around the world and was lead by his desire for the waves and the diverse cultures. Tillack encountered countless societies and lifestyles that lent a hand in helping him become more aware of his own self-explorations, direction and personal growth. Tillack's work is heavily influenced from his emotions and experiences from traveling and is infused with the feelings of serenity thru ones environment.
"As I grow with my work, my focus and purpose becomes more defined, adding a greater compassion and drive to not only my art, but my life. My subject matter is mainly focused on the environment where I usually include a body of water to represent its importance in my life. I hope you not only enjoy the artistic beauty of the piece, and are drawn into its serenity, but ultimately understand the statement that I am trying to convey, that we need to look after this so we don't loose it!!!!
"Nothing is as healthy or can replace a deep breath of fresh air and the serenity only nature can give."
A self taught artist, Tillack pursued many independent studies in such places as, Italy , France , Central America , South America and South Africa . As well as participating with other artist in bringing together many high profile public pieces. Pete has filled many respected roles such as, Coordinator/Moderator for the San Diego Art Institutes program "The Gathering", to being selected to serve on the Arts Master Plan Citizen's Advisory Committee for his local city. Tillack's technical analysis of contrast, and his regular use of monotone colors, are what is used to dramatize the silhouettes and reflections shaped by a sunrise or sunset. This gives his wonderful creations a depth that draw the viewer into each piece, and lures them into an experience, transcending them to a peaceful disposition -"their personal journey."
