In his extremely high-format painting "big step track" from 2015, Peter Sehringer combines representations of optical illusion - the non-central perspective spatial projection of cubic forms leads to the so-called jumping-around effect - and that of a color shape distribution on the surface, whose internal boundaries are defined only by the vertical and oblique lines at a 45° angle. The viewer is constantly compelled to perceive the section of his field of vision spatially or two-dimensionally - associatively, he embarks almost simultaneously on a step-guided viewing direction and on a color-field-limited search for traces. Structuring elements are the dominant vertical center line in the upper half of the picture as well as the actual and perceived squares, which in turn can be thought of as a surface or as part of a cube. Sehringer here follows the information-aesthetic insights of Concrete Art, but achieves a drama that goes far beyond this through the complex color-space structures, apart from a strict form of architecture-related, isometric axonometry - the projection is set above the right angle. Sehringer counters the formal irritation with a color distribution that seems dissonant, but is in fact fascinatingly calculated.
