Acrylic, acrylic based medium, UV protection, oil, fabrics, wallpaper, and pigment prints (collage) on canvas. In this series Peter Vahlefeld paints still lifes that aren’t still at all. This work exudes raw energy, speed, turbulence, and something uncontrolled. The gold pigments and oil paint are vibrating in dancing brushstrokes across the canvas; The subject matter, a photograph of two cups of coffee after lunch, is nearly obliterated, the composition pushed to the limit of representation. The work emerges from the physical process of painting, painting over, wiping out, printing, masking, scraping, sanding, pouring and repainting. It is a work with a dense and varied facture, texture, and surface, building up the ground—and also undermining it—with all manner of physical and pictorial material, into a cohesive, resonant whole.

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.
