Beginning each painting Peter Vahlefeld seeks to create a subtle but visually engaging base, which serves as a foil to the next layers of prints, paint, and fabrics. Exploring the manipulation and repurposing of hotel stationery, the work simultaneously suggests dissolution and materialization, incorporating both additive and subtractive techniques. In their accumulation and splitting of layers and nexus of forms, the work not only documents the painting process, but also functions as a record of an expressive movement in time. Using metallic pigments like gold, silver and copper, the materiality of paint becomes subject matter and ranges from matte and velvety to transparent and translucent, resulting in a visceral, and sometimes thickly impastoed surface.
