Exploring acrylic dreams with German artist Peter Zimmerman

Culture / February 05, 2020

If you’re in the mood for colorful and mind-bending installations, head over to Modeka. Starting tomorrow, “Cross/Linked” opens to the public, an exhibition of Peter Zimmerman’s works with epoxy and acrylic.

I love how the artist’s works are mirror-like and play with layering. Show notes describe his process as ” abstract pieces are produced by digitally manipulating book covers and found images that are enlarged, blended and transformed into incognizable objects. This creative method brings about tones of Modernist Color Field painters, where emotions, meanings, and intentions are conveyed in plain sight, unbeknownst to the audience.”

Zimmerman’s experimentation is backed up by his decades-long experience and success in the art world. His art has been displayed in venues such as  Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris, MoMA in New York, the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Fonds National d’Art Contemporain, the Neue Galerie Graz in Austria, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art, and the New Orleans Museum of Modern Art.

The exhibit runs until 29 February, so better plan your visit ASAP. It’s a good excuse to visit Modeka, a new art space that’s independent, artist-led” and is dedicated to be a ” new and innovative platform for international and local artists to showcase their work in a manner which aims to be both engaging and inclusive to revolutionize the way contemporary arts perceived, acquired, and engaged with.”
