PETER ZIMMERMANN. WORKS SINCE 1987

PETER ZIMMERMANN (1956-)

The trademarks of Peter Zimmermann’s most recent paintings are extremely shiny surfaces upon which at times amorphous, at times apparently pixelated, rastered or optically inhomoginated areas of colour glow intensely. The final outcome on the canvas is preceded by a complicated process of computation using found photographs, pushing the banal templates into a kind of neo-abstract as well as surrealist cliché. What is interesting however is the fact that the artist views the pictorial process as an analogue to the abstraction process of the most diverse branches of science. The paintings emerging from his studio nowadays are the result of conscious artistic decision-making.

By contrast, his »artefacts« for the exhibition in 1999 at the Kölnischen Kunstverein were »planned« with no specific outcome in mind. His purpose was to illustrate the »difficulty of decision-making, of chance, of contingency«. Contingency has remained the key term however, out of which the artist can produce unlimited pyrotechnics both for himself and his oftentimes amazing images—chance used consciously a compositional medium or which is actively invoked to realise an ever-expansive form of pictorial abstraction. »works since 1987« is the first truly retrospective catalogue to showcase Peter Zimmermann’s entire artistic production since the 1980s. It comprehensively documents his book jackets, poster hoardings, box objects, sculptures as well as the broad spectrum of his lacquer paintings. Included just for fun is the fashion line presented by Tara Jarmon in Paris in 2007 which was based on Zimmerman’s paintings (a special show the Punk doyën Malcolm McLaren deigned to honour). So the rule still is: »Contingency is life’s governing principle!«

Peter Zimmermann lives and works in Cologne. He studied at the Academy of Art and Design in Stuttgart. From 2002 to 2007, he was a professor at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne. His solo exhibitions have featured at important European and American institutions: \"Wheels\" at the Nuremberg Kunsthalle in 2007, \"Current: Peter Zimmermann\" at the Museum of Art in Columbus OH in 2008, and recently, the significant retrospective \"All You Need\" at the Museum of Modern Art Kärtnen in Klagenfurt.
