Peter Zimmermann

In his latest body of work, Zimmermann works with the method of color separation, which the title of the exhibition CMYK adopts. CMYK, refers to four inks, cyan, magenta, yellow and key (black) used in color printing. This color model works by partially or entirely masking colors ona lighter, such as white, background where the ink is used to subtract the brightness from the base in order to prevent reflection. As if duplicating his process of alienating context through the choice of digitally disrupted images, the artist, by referencing the subtractive color model, adds another level of removal from the original pictorial sources. Zimmermann, by reducing the primary colors from their original colors, directs the viewer for a new way of translation andinterpretation in his recent paintings. Zimmermann’s works reinterpret the notion of traditional painting with references to Modernism and the Color Field movement. His practice evolves from his collection of scanned or sourced images that are later blurred and distorted by computer-based programs. The unidentifiable images are later projected onto a canvas surface to be traced and poured with colorful resin.
