About the work
Peter Wüthrich
Swiss, b. 1962
Follow

Contemporary Swiss artist Peter Wüthrich constructs artwork out of found, multi-colored book covers, dissociated from their original purposes to become infinite metaphors for the world. Within repetitive compositions of linen books, each book becomes a single block of color, like a digital pixel, whose printed cover is indicative of imagination and adventure—world literature, art, religion, history, fiction, science, philosophy, mythology—topics and titles among seemingly countless references. Whether using whole, closed linen-covered books or cutting shapes (such as angels and butterflies) out of the covers, Wüthrich employs the book as an object and metaphor, ultimately in reference to humanity.
