Augen Zu (Close Your Eyes), 2017

Peckl has been employing this method of collage technique for several years. The use of mostly advertisement posters, visual waste of the consumer society, separated in its basic ingredients colour, letters and figure: as shredded stripes the colours find way into quotes of brushstrokes. Glued side by side, partly overlapping, sometimes bent, the results are paintings not painted. The former content has turned into poetic sceneries of urgent matter, radically attacking one’s eyes. The material´s origin as printed matter stays visible as a reminiscence of false pretences now art will fulfil.
