    "Being a self-taught artist allowed Pete to draw on his own lines from the multiple sources and aspects, but it was the internal questions and relationship to society that gives the life to his work that people associate with. Tillack takes everyday scenes and puts a spin on it to help narrate the relationship on one’s self with in a society that has become very overwhelming if you let it. Reading like a song that we are all connected to, each piece has many items of symbolism that bring together the reason we are who we are, and the motivation behind our choices that are guided by the challenges we have made on the road of life. His realistic paintings always have underlying meanings that once pointed out, play like a song that we all relate too as if it was just sung for us. “As youth falls into the past, and the present becomes the form carved by my many unique experiences, my work casts stronger meanings, as I look deeper into the connections with our society. I feel lucky that along the journey, I found my talent, and it has allowed me to be able to transpose a blank canvas into a story that captures a viewer."


As a kid we were encouraged to dream big and allowed to have outlandish desires and ambitions…
What is it that chokes these in most people as we get older?
Is it fear, knowledge, responsibility or society that restrains possibility into fantasy….is it the wise, lucky crazy or strong that are able to push all these aside to achieve what we originally had sketched out in our school books.
There is no age limit to start going down that road, maturity and wisdom can be one of our greatest assets.

I know that when I came to that fork in my road, I had no anchors in my life (meaning financial responsibilities or Dependents) and I was still semi living out of a backpack, so to make the choice to chase being an artist was a lot easier, because when I failed, there wasn’t much to loose, and I could easy make another attempt (and again and again). But what would happen if it was now that I had that decision, to leave a job I may not like but a pay check I did, to do a job that I loved and had that inconsistency of the new beginning……….
