Peter Krauskopf
(Germany, b. 1966)

Peter Krauskopf studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in his birth town Leipzig and later continued as a post-graduate under Arno Rink. Known for his break with the figurative tradition of Leipzig painting, Peter Krauskopf especially interested in the process of overpainting, which he understands as an overwriting of time. All of his pieces – the intensive colored smaller plates, as well as the big monochrome color gradients, seem to be abstract at first sight, but they are all ‘concretions of a period of time’. On homogeneous, smooth grounds which either consist of an old, former abandoned painting or a monochrome under painting, Krauskopf performs one single intervention to form a new picture. In 2015 he received the Falkenrot Prize. His paintings were widely exhibited including the Mies van der Rohe-Haus, Berlin, the Forum Kunst Rottweil, the Kunsthalle Lingen and Kunsthaus Kaufbeuren, works presented in the collection of the Albertinum in Dresden, the Ludwig Forum in Aachen, the City Museum of Wrocław, the Kunstverein Ludwigshafen, the Museum Schloss Morsbroich in Leverkusen, Kupferstichkabinett and the Galerie Neue Meister in Dresden, Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg.
