Painting: Digital, Manipulated, Oil, Spray Paint, Photo on Aluminium.
Oil, lacquer, spraypaint, mediums, fabrics on pigment print mounted on Aludibond (UV protection)
In this series, Peter Vahlefeld translates overpainted ads for international galleries into paintings on aludibond, mimicking the aesthetic of a high glossy photographic print, and at the same time eliminating a lot of the photographic surface by putting thick impasto of oil paint over it. The brushstrokes obscure the photographic screen, eliminating unnecessary detail—allowing interesting relations to pop up between paint, image, fabrics and to bridge the gap between abstract painting and photographic representation. It is like erasing something, and to open an aesthetic threshold between pure disorganized sensation, and the picture as a digitally reproduced image with paint on top.
