QBG – 17.11 – 17.12.2017
The perfect heartfelt brush of a stroke is the pinnacle of a painting, it can carry the rest of the painting on its shoulders but when uninspired it can wreck it all.
In Peter Mohalls painting we are presented with such strokes, or should I say stroke. It’s one single stroke that is cast and reproduced over and over on multiple canvases on different colors and lengths. The gesture of painting is replaced and conceptualized. We are also confronted with the question of original and copy, the mass-produced and the unique.
