In his new series “Ecken” Peter reveals the hidden poetry of corners. An unrealness lies in the strange beauty of these images, which also arouses a melancholic atmosphere. “Ecken” is strongly related to Arthur Danto’s idea of art as “The Transfiguration of the Commonplace” (Harvard University Press, 1981). Peter chose common corner spaces as the motifs for his work and strongly focuses not on their material, but on their immaterial quality. Peter does not use the square format to produce a centered composition, but to support the unreal atmosphere of the images. With the right-angled windows, corner-lines and additional geometric elements in his square images, he produced strong frame-in-frame compositions, which seem perfectly balanced. Another aspect of “Ecken” is the special color and light ambience: The absence of shadows and the smooth colors add an element of quietness and sobriety.
