Peter Nowotny works are the product of breaking down an image into layers of form and colour creating bold, exciting pieces. 
By means of abstraction, he succeeds in translating the figurative presence of his portraits into formal, ornamental patterns. Wishing to add a third dimension to his motifs, he decided to transfer several paintings to a glass sculpture.
