American artist Peter Opheim’s new whimsical clay works and paintings at Powen Gallery, Taipei

Looking at Peter Opheim works is like observing out of this world characters come to life. They seem to transform into totally different creatures when observed from different angles. With short but forceful brushstrokes, his characters look animated and frenetic in their actions. His paintings take on a clay-like three-dimensional quality, especially when observed from a distance.

Collected here are some of his artworks currently on view (for the first time) at Powen Gallery, Taipei.
