Peter Stohrer (1951-2017) was an artist and curator. His encounters and life situations are reflected in his works, which are open-pored testimonies of an artist’s path. Beyond media boundaries, he turned to various modes of expression and techniques – from photorealism to pop elements, expressive gestures, color painting, artist books, copy art, painting bodies, minimal tendencies to installation painting. All these possibilities he explored for himself deeply touched by the materials, by his artistic environment and life. Art emerged out of doing, and so it is less stylistic categories than modes of action that characterize Stohrer’s language: collaging, layering, grating, building, bringing together – juxtaposing, breathing, smirking, repeating, looking into the infinite and never “too perfect”.
