Exhibition

The artist uses found wooden objects, harvested branches and industrially produced wood as pictorial material for wall objects and walk-in enclosures.

IN FAMILIAR STRANGENESS

When Peter F. Piening talks about the world, he says: "the apparent world". A strange fascination emanates from his depictions. Since the 1970s, Piening has developed a haunting body of work that seems to be strongly influenced by the surreal and fantastic, with grasses, tree trunks and snow-covered surfaces drawn down to the last detail.

Since the early 1980s, he has been working with wood: found objects, branches and industrially produced wood serve as pictorial material for standing and wall objects. Even in the peculiar walk-in enclosures, which seem like parallel worlds, everything is sawn from wood. The fretsaw is the seemingly harmless tool for his explorations of the everyday. Piening uses it to cite things subtly on the tableau of so-called reality.
