Works Since 1987
This is the first truly retrospective catalog to showcase German artist Peter Zimmermann’s entire artistic production since the 1980s, comprehensively documenting his book jackets, poster hoardings, box objects, and sculptures as well as the broad spectrum of his lacquer paintings. (Included just for fun is the fashion line presented by Tara Jarmon in Paris in 2007 which was based on Zimmerman’s paintings.) Zimmermann has always explored the possibilities of chance, used consciously as compositional medium or active invocation, to create an ever-expansive form of pictorial abstraction. “Contingency is life’s governing principle!” declares this versatile artist, whose works range widely but always are the result of conscious artistic decisionmaking. Includes a text by Andrea Madesta.
