Peter Feilers energetic acrylic paintings draw the viewer deep into their multi-perspective pictorial world. The work youhu ! is oriented strictly on the central axis of the Polyptych and captivates by the motivic reflection: the recurring figures form a pattern that draws as a formal idea of the entire system down to the last detail. In this way Feiler unifies his complex scenario in which his bizarre protagonists over enthusiastically accept the offered ice cream. The human existence and the bound up abysses, the grotesque of emotional worlds and an existential weltschmerz meet in an exuberant and vibrant painting and drawing style, whereby the contrast of our paradoxical here and now carries on.
