Peter Panyoczki Exhibition - Surface and Beneath
Swiss-New Zealand artist Peter Panyoczki is exhibiting this November at Taksu Gallery.
Born 1953 in Budapest Hungary, Peter escaped with his parents to Switzerland in 1957 following the Hungarian Revolution of '56 where he lived for the next two decades, graduating with a Master of Arts from the University of Zurich in 1980. After a visit to New Zealand in 1992, Peter decided to immigrate, becoming a New Zealand resident in 1995 living in Kaiwaka.
As a multi-disciplinary artist, he aims to explore ideas relating to ‘transitional spaces’. Especially issues dealing with migration, cultural displacements and suburban politics. Peter may be regarded as a mixed media artist, working in a hybrid of forms and mediums: painting, sculpture, installation, photography and digital technology.
