Peter Klare

With the exhibit, SILVER, Gallery Springer Berlin presents, for the first time, the work of the artist Peter Klare. The large-scale colored photos were fashioned in the city of Montevideo, located on the shores of the Rio de la Plata. Developed by hand, Klare initially enlarges his motifs to an extent that not only reveals the smallest details but also makes visible the grain of the film.

In a second step, Klare paints over the photos in a silver gouache. The metallic color strokes flowing over the photographic surface are at once free and awkward, as well as guided by contours. With the fading of details, on the one hand, and the hazy reflection of light, on the other, Klare successfully reveals an independent image scheme caught between reality and imagination. For the viewer, an almost three-dimensionally open field unfurls within the photograph.
