Artist Statement

Increasingly, my sculpture is designed for outdoor placement. Standing as a sentinel and an opening in that setting, it acts as a key to entry and an opening of passage to an expanded personal sense of place and adds a heightened ability to discover the authenticity of personal identity with its accompanying need, and right, to belong.

Peter Frantz is an American artist born in Tyrone, Pennsylvania and subsequently entered a large, eclectic, extended family of artists and musicians. His primary artistic language is the object. As a practicing sculptor much of his three-dimensional art employs natural elements as raw material, combined with cast bronze, steel, glass, building materials and retasked objects. He attended the University of Notre Dame studying engineering before subsequently matriculating at Goddard College, earning a degree in design and social ecology.  He holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia (2005-2007).
