Acrylic, acrylic based medium, UV protection, oil, pigments (gold and copper), fabrics, and pigment prints (collage) on canvas. Art is a language made up of a visual code of status symbols. Peter Vahlefeld plays with this code, and sometimes subverts it; without this play on references the images become too abstract. You might feel the references but you can't determine their source. Manipulating the languages of advertising, and the art market, Peter Vahlefeld engineers enigmatic and confrontational narratives. He has characterized his collage-like methodology as one derived from and focused on the »byproducts of culture«, in this case a newspaper clipping, advertising a Picasso painting for an auction.

Peter Vahlefeld's visceral artworks combine a rigorous, process-based practice, continually rethinking the possibilities of painting. Using references to a broad array of sources, including art history, literature, and pop culture, he creates paintings that alternate between flat experience and dimensionality. Perfectly poised between European and American traditions (Art Informel, Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art), his work combines complexity into a visual richness that is neither figurative nor abstract. The paintings unfold in an intricate, unpredictable interaction of layers and excess—a constant juggling of paint, prints, fabrics, mediums and effect. They draw their actuality from the collision between the visual codes of mass media and the subjective traces of painterly expression. Peter Vahlefeld studied at Parsons School of Design, NYC (BFA) and currently lives in Berlin. He has participated in a variety of solo exhibitions and art fairs, and venues such as Neumeister Fine Art Auctioneers (Munich), and Sotheby's (Vienna). His work can be found in corporate collections throughout Germany, Austria, India, as well as in private collections across Europe, the United States, and Asia. He was featured on the German television channel ZDF.
