Peter Tuma

En Route

A very topical rediscovery: Peter Tuma (*1938), is a painter, draftsman, and graphic artist. In his early work, he already shows the imbalanced relationship between nature and technology. Between abstraction and figuration, the constructive interferes with the organic, the vegetal overgrows the architectonic. Several stays in Japan expanded Tuma’s painting to include symbols of popular culture and gave him a new conceptual horizon. His paintings and works on paper are often, as Ulrich Krempel writes, “confusing or melancholic,” but always powerful, inventive, and human.
