Since Peter Sehringer's studies of painting at the Stuttgart Art Academy from 1980 to 1986 under Rudolf Schoofs, the Stuttgart-based artist has devoted himself to representationalism and the figure. In doing so, he has acquired a special pictorial technique that goes far beyond traditional painting. Abandoning brush, canvas and easel, the border crosser creates works of art that, due to their increased materiality and object-like nature of the picture surface, can be located in the intermediate area between painterly and plastic modes of expression. In the 2001 solo show at the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, conceived by Petra Buschhoff and Christian von Holst, Sehringer caused a positive stir with his floral ornamental depictions, his colorful images from the animal and plant world, and his floral still lifes. The series of his plant representations goes back to the year 2006, when also "Unterm Walnussbaum II" is created. The method applied to the image carrier wood, which is close to the incrustation technique, creates an unusual, stencil-like structure. The alienation effect that accompanies the enlargement of the image section ensures that the viewer first perceives the ornament and only at second glance recognizes the leaves of the tree species mentioned in the title.
