Collection Of The Artist
Krausz tends to work from what he sees around him in his daily life and during his travels.

" His current decision to restrict the number of technological features in his landscapes therefore represents a deliberate return to a portrayal of places where nature has been allowed - for an extended period - to blossom in harmony with human intervention. He seems to choose the moment immediately before transformation into a modern landscape takes place, as if the inclusion of electric pylons in animage had the power to obliterate the centuries that preceded them " "the missing artefact is the presence of humanity itself, which is merely suggested by the traces it leaves behind."

Denyse Roy, Peter Krausz, Les Paysages, 1999
