Old Painting (naked woman laying, with black barrel over the eyes), 2005
Painting | Oil and acrylic on canvas
The work of Hans-Peter Feldmann (Dusseldorf, 1941) spans a great diversity of media: painting, sculpture, installation, photography, collage, books, archives and collections of images, objects and so on. What interests him most are the forms of art we construct in our everyday lives, especially the uses and meanings we give to photographs. His work, full of humour, interrogates the symbolic space that opens up between what things are and what they mean to us, making visible the dreams and desires we project onto images and objects, loading them with meaning.
