Peter Zimmermann-Press Release


26 March 2010- 25 April 2010
Opening: 26 March 2010- Friday

Peter Zimmermann is at Dirimart with his Epoxy Works!

Dirimart presents to art enthusiasts the recent works of Peter Zimmermann, who has aroused
worldwide interest with the canvases and sculptures he created using epoxy resin.

Using book covers as his source in his works since the 1980s, Zimmermann has made use of posters,
wall papers, printed materials and boxes in his creation process through the years.
Staring from the mid-1990s, he has introduced a different interpretation in his works by abstracting
through computer effects a set of materials he discovered himself. The artist creates compositions
from pictures manipulated by transferring into a computer the details extracted from the images
featuring a cell structure he examined under a microscope or buildings, mountains and blocks. He
then combines this with epoxy material to create works each of which contains frames taken from life.

Peter Zimmermann’s exhibition Next of Kin, which includes twelve works by the artist, will be open to
visits until 25 April 2010.

Born in 1956 in Germany, Zimmermann graduated from the Staatlichen Academy where he studied between 1979 – 1984.
Based in Cologne, Germany, artist’s works have been exhibited in many leading galleries and museums worldwide. Some of his
most recent solo exhibitions include:
Museum Moderner Kunst Kärnten, Klagenfurt (2009), Galerie Horach Moya, Palma de Mallorca new paintings, Galeria Filomena
Soares, Lisbon currents, cma, Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus, Ohayo (2008) wheel, Kunsthalle Nuremberg (cat.)
Reliance, Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, Paris (2007)
