Peter Zylstra was born in Canada and completed his BFA and MFA in the United States. In addition to pursuing his own art practice, he has lectured at several universities in the US and Mexico, and is currently involved with the Melbourne-based film company Contemporary Arts Media. In his art practice, Peter works in a variety of media but specialises in painting and photography. Many of his images deal with the conceptual underpinnings and material limitations of these art forms, particularly the relatively new technology of digital photography. Another subject that features prominently in his work is the politics of looking, especially that implicit in the touristic, colonising and artistic gaze.  His many projects have exhibited widely throughout the world (www.peterzylstra.com).
