"...with a deep reverence for nature and a sense of the spirituality embedded within the landscape Peter Blizzard creates works which seek to elevate nature within steel shrine-like structures. His stone menhirs act as a conduit for a deeper appreciation and insight into nature and our relationship to the environment."

Robert Lindsay, McClelland Sculpture Park, Oct. 2005

"Through these works, Peter is inviting us to be conveyed into his space and to consider the many interrelationships between different elements of land and earth and the natural environments they create. In this space, we are also invited to consider tenderness, timelessness, balance, tranquility, pure form, shelter, restfulness, spirituality, reverence and the sacred. We should each be extremely grateful for these moments that he has given us."

Rupert Myer, Chairman, Australian National Gallery, 2005

"Blizzard plays upon the character and identity of the materials he has employed to provide a mysterious and poetic presence with a distinct poetic quality. Despite tranquil positioning and their apparent restful poses, Blizzard's totemic structures suggest movement, presenting their essential character with a robust assertiveness and timeless beauty."

Caroline Field, Stonnington Stables Museum of Art, Deakin University, 2005
