Christine Litz (Ed.)
German artist Peter Zimmermann (b. 1956) is one of the outstanding international protagonists of conceptual painting. Recently he radically transformed the New Art Museum in his hometown of Freiburg into a massive, integrated, walk-in artwork using the floor as canvas and pastel ground to his spectacular new series of oil paintings. The elegantly designed softcover exhibition catalog features swirling painted epoxy floors and reflected soft colors as background to his new paintings in its entirety. Since the mid-1980s, Peter Zimmermann has manipulated documents such as photos, film stills, and diagrams with digital filters, transferring these onto canvas using several layers of epoxy resin. It is in the context of intensive study of digital media and their impact on contemporary painting that the complex and colorful cosmos of Peter Zimmermann unfolds. With essays by curators Christine Litz and Didem Yazici and an interview with Peter Zimmermann by writer Till Briegleb.
