In his painting "Iris on Red" from 2008, Peter Sehringer dispenses with both brush and canvas in order to give painting a completely new character - without renouncing the long tradition of the genre, on the contrary: the use of added fillers in his paint is reminiscent of old incrustations in terms of effect, while the use of stencils achieves a mosaic effect. Against a sense of tradition in technique, Sehringer relies on radical formal simplification and a signal-like ordering of color to experiment with repetition as a stylistic device. He subverts the resulting series of motifs individually and painterly through a subtly contrasting color scheme, playful sprinklings of detail, and capricco-like elements, such as the monumental blossoms rhythmed across the entire width of the painting. Thus Sehringer gains a completely new sensual presence for contemporary painting.
