Peter Zimmermann (Germany, 1951) makes epoxy paintings that explore the visual effects of surface and material through glossy, poured shapes of rich colours. His amorphous forms prompt endless interpretation, the depth and density of his materials create visceral effects of shifting light and colour, 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.
