Peter Vahlefeld’s work explores the visible and veiled aspects of the dissemination of images. The paintings are both complex and multilayered, emotive pictorial palimpsests regarding his use of superimposed sources, which carry an iconographic set of references. These sources are transformed during the painting process in order to rearrange their meaning content. Peter is interested in the formal tensions within a painting, how visually different elements like paint, prints and collage interact on canvas. He picks up particularly the immediate and intuitive approaches of action painting/abstract expressionism—rubbing out and erasing previous markings, where oil paint seems to have been dragged, pulled, splashed, and splattered across the canvas.

Peter Vahlefeld – ZDF Television, Germany: Studio Berlin

The recent work uses the tactics of bootlegging and expropriation to address issues of economic commercialisation. The artwork is an abstruse commentary on the nature of advertising for art, galleries, auction houses and museums—a practice dedicated entirely to the harnessing of abstract desire and subjective memory to a tangible product, signified but not yet present.

Artist Talk at Bar Giornale Munich with Stephanie Senge and Prof. Wolfgang Ullrich. Hosted by Dr. Stefanie Staby und Kat Schuetz.

Peter Vahlefeld – Exhibition Bar Giornale Munich

Peter Vahlefeld weaves a complex web of images, advertisements and popular elements that superimposes his narrative, layer by layer. He deconstructs not only linear narrative structures but also the divisions between truth and fiction.

What is it about your studio space that inspires you?

Everything. The chaos and cacophony, the colors – and Berlin inspires me.

What sounds, scents and sights do you encounter while in your studio?

During the summer I encounter sun basically all day, all the windows are open and there is party all around the studios. Whereas in winter everything is dark and quiet.

What is your favourite material to work with? How has your use of it evolved throughout your practice?

Oil paint and my Epson Ultrachrome printer.

What themes do you pursue?

The art market and the commercialisation of art.

What advice has had the biggest impact on your career?

If you will ask 10 lawyers you will get 10 different opinions – so don't bother.

What are your favourite places besides your studio?

New York. London. Paris. Munich
