Peter K. Koch’s works evade categorization within the confines of any commonly accepted genre, depriving the observer of descriptive access and refusing to subject themselves to classical ideas about painting and sculpture.
In terms of formal characterization, his works, which frequently unfold within space and stand in closely correspondence with that space, are more closely related to hybrid objects that exhibit pictorial and sculptural properties – while still remaining on the fringes. Koch uses aspects of painting and sculpture. When conceiving of his works on the basis of prototypes, colorful surfaces are transmuted into spaces. The fragments are alienated via pictorial re-categorization, leading to an independent form, an abstracted concept of space.
Throughout his process of artistic genesis, Koch’s artistic oeuvre, with its recurring hard-edge elements, has successfully transitioned from the pure two-dimensionality of a picture or an object on the wall to spatial constructions located somewhere between minimalism and pop art.
