The Cyote came and everybody left, I wonder why?
Thunderbird, thunderstorm and thunder
Chaos in the bridnest when the black nasty cat climbed in there
Imsy Wispy Spider- Today you made blue webs
The goat escaped and nothing was left of the happy sunflowers
Bees, bees, beat the garden
Happy Animals Dacing Like Queens
Sleeping Peacebird in the super red sunset
Welcome to “couckoo nest”
I dreamed about UFOs when the crows woke me up
Hip Hop Dancer in Times Square
I opend the front door and it was hundreds of escaped goats stomped up the road trying to attack my kitchen
Stone landscape from gotland

Peter Astrom

Before there ever was postmodern art, Peter Astrom made postmodern photographs. Recognized as a pioneer in the “instant art” movement, Astrom was one of the first artists to scavenge the streets of the Lower East Side for objects to put into the newly invented Xerox color copying machine and produce images. In 1981 his camera-less Xerox prints were published in the Time-Life book, “The Art of Photography”.
During the 1980’s, when many American artists made installations and minimalistic art, Peter Astrom worked against the main stream by doing paintings. Throughout this decade the artist ventured from using forceful brushstrokes and strong colors on canvas to a more intricate and delicate palette. Letting some of his Swedish heritage and love of nature surface, despite a style clearly rooted in American expressionism.
