Peter von Tiesenhausen lives and works in the small community of Demmit Alberta, however his reputation as an artist reaches far beyond. From his early beginnings studying at Alberta College of Art and Design, through having participated in projects and exhibitions in Europe, USA, New Zealand and many across Canada, he has become an artist on the international stage.

Von Tiesenhausen is an adept painter and sculptor but is also well known for his site specific installations. He has developed many of these installations on the land where he lives. Many of them use natural materials that over time disintegrate and revert to a natural state, sometimes leaving little trace, others like bronze sculptures placed in the forest or small chapel-esque buildings given over to the quiet contemplation, have a longer lasting legacy.

In 2003, the artist drew national attention when his property line was breached by an oil and gas corporation planning to build a pipeline. Von Tiesenhausen argued that his land was a work of art and therefore protected under Canadian Copyright law. A settlement was reached out of court. He has worked with Two Rivers Gallery in the past where he has proven to be a dynamic and popular speaker. In 2005 he had a solo show, Requiem, at Two Rivers Gallery which examined the impact of the Pine Beetle infestation in the boreal forest and in 2009 von Tiesenhausen’s sculpture, Balance, was installed at Two Rivers Gallery.
