Artist Statement

“I am not a missionary. I don’t want to change people. But maybe I can make them uneasy with the provocation and remember something good inside them.” (Peter Feiler, 2006)

Dark scenes are revealed on the unconventional coloured pencil or ink drawings and paintings of the young Berlin artist Peter Feiler. Composed of single narrative factors and plots, whole world vision of atrocities that men can do to each other, surging from a claustrophobic constriction unfold through his delicate hatchings. In the negative, the abysmal, in perversion, Peter Feiler seeks the floating borders between the visible world and that of thought and imagination.
The latent aggression in the protagonists’ gestures and mimics is put into perspective by the works’ mellow colours and fragile execution, luring the viewers into their worlds and lulling them in false safety only to hit them with the full impact of the brutality that resides in the very darkest places of the human soul: abuse, violation, torture and child rape, sometimes merely alluded, sometimes in blatant obviousness. (Katharina Klara Jung, 2006)
