Peter Vahlefeld’s work is a multimedia blend that combines analog and digital painting on canvas. Vahlefeld explores the currency of advertisements for galleries and international auction houses. By painting lushly on top of them he expropriates their surface, language and semantics. Hijacking material from the public domain and obscuring them, Vahlefeld further complicates the everyday transaction of images by taking away the content they are supposed to advertise. All compositions venture into various configurations of spatial expression created by the superimposition of layers of paint and layers of digital prints - marks scanned, collaged, re-photographed, printed, over-painted - the result is a work that occupies a space between painting and its digital double, leaving a picture plane marked by an effortlessly elegant dance of smudges, puddles and saturated strokes.
