Peter Riss' paintings\, wooden works and installations are d istinguished by an almost excessive aestheticism: glassy lacquer surfaces r eflecting the environment (including the viewers) as well as golden skeleto ns and fawns are all part of Peter Riss’ imagery. At first glance this kind of aesthetic might seem rather self-indulgent and vain\, but\, it is preci sely in the moment of embracing vanity that beauty reveals its inherent sel f-destruction. In an almost Dorian-Gray-like-manner Peter Riss unmasks the Apollonian beauty by carving images of despair and loneliness into those gl ossy lacquer surfaces. This dualistic concept of Apollonian beauty and puri ty and the Dionysian destructive forces can be found throughout Riss’ works : chaotic organic forms collide with stern cubist lines\, algid abstraction collides with exuberant figuration. By moving between those two poles\, Ri ss constitutes his very own artistic creation.
