Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Oil, Spray Paint, Ink, Digital on Canvas.

Acrylic, acrylic based medium, archival varnish UV protection, cardboard, oil, and archival pigment prints (collage) on canvas. The artwork comes ready to hang.

Peter Vahlefeld’s portraiture actively engages with the history of art and addresses issues ranging from representation and appropriation to heritage, style, and tradition. His technique combines painting with sculpture, boldly mixing diverse and unconventional materials to realize a richly textured manner of figuration. The artworks take inspiration from the canonical paintings of modern art. Vahlefeld acts like a narrator, who comments on the history of painting, hijacked for marketing campaigns by the art market. He transposes fragments from these icons, layering, opposing, and intersecting histories with his own interventions.
