Peter Vahlefeld | MyArtSpace

Peter Vahlefeld's work deals with the circulation and recycling of images. The paintings are both complex and multilayered, emotive pictorial palimpsests regarding his use of superimposed sources, which carry an iconographic set of references. Technically, these are no longer just paintings, but a combination of analog and digital painting, printing and collage. His mediums are over-painted advertisements torn out of art magazines and auction catalogues, double spread pages of books, museum shop merchandising, and all sort of printed matter. The artist’s expropriation of these sources is undertaken in order to rearrange their meaning content. The works pick up particularly the immediate and intuitive approaches of action painting, and the element of destruction, rubbing out and erasing previous markings, where oil paint seems to have been dragged, pulled, splashed, and splattered across the canvas. At times buttery and fully suspended, at others sand-paper dry, his richly textured grounds are as interesting to examine close up as from a distance.

In his new work, Peter Vahlefeld breaches new territory in exploring the tenuous relationship between the modes of analog and digital painting and the incongruities that are produced at their collision.
