OVER DE KUNSTENAAR / ABOUT THE ARTIST


Peter Riss (Kaufbeuren, 1962) voltooide een studie medicijnen en studeerde aan de Hogeschool voor Beeldende Kunsten in Düsseldorf. In zijn ruimtelijke werken staat de innerlijke tweestrijd van de mens centraal. Gladde, glanzende oppervlakken tonen invloeden van het kubisme en minimalisme en geven een gevoel van modernistische bekwaamheid. De schijnbare orde wordt echter verstoord door de organische, rauwe vormen en texturen van opgezette dieren, hars, hoorns en botten. Het natuurlijke bevecht de cultureel geconstrueerde orde. Dit contrast tussen het gladde en het rauwe, orde en chaos, natuur en cultuur is inherent aan het mens-zijn. Volgens Riss draagt de mens ‘een donkere metgezel’ in zich mee. In zijn precieze, zorgvuldig gebalanceerde sculpturen en installaties verbeeldt hij dit spanningsveld van naast elkaar bestaande krachten die elkaar bevechten, maar ook in stand houden: een innerlijk conflict tussen donker en licht. Riss woont en werkt in München.
 

Peter Riss (Kaufbeuren, 1962) studied at the art academy of Düsseldorf after completing a study in medicine. His spatial works and installations comment on the dual nature of mankind. Smooth, shiny surfaces hint at influences of cubism and minimalism and give a feeling of modernist proficiency. However, the apparent order is disrupted by the organic, raw shapes and textures of stuffed animals, resin, horns, and bones. The natural upsets the culturally constructed order. The contrast between smooth and raw, order and chaos, culture and nature is inherent to mankind. According to Riss, we carry a ‘dark companion’ within ourselves. In his precise, carefully balanced sculptures he represents this tension between co-existing forces that clash and complement each other at the same time: an inner conflict between light and dark. Riss lives and works in Munich.
