Peter Zimmermann, ‘Zity’, 2013, Johyun Gallery

About Peter Zimmermann

Peter Zimmerman makes epoxy paintings that explore the visual effects of surface and material through glossy pour-like shapes of rich colors. His amorphous forms prompt endless interpretation, the depth and density of his materials creating visceral effects of shifting light and color, heightened by layered airbrushing. For source materials, Zimmerman repurposes book covers and old paintings, and uses Photoshop filters to manipulate found images from the Internet into unidentifiable abstractions.

German, b. 1956, Freiburg, Germany, based in Cologne, Germany
