Apart from Romanticism, Krauskopf’s work is influenced by the Russian Suprematism of Kazimir Malevich, as well as the color-field painting of the New York school, which gave rise to the styles of painters such as Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman, who have long been a subject of interest for Krauskopf.
Born in 1966 in Leipzig, where he studied at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst, he currently lives and works in Berlin. He has taken part in numerous exhibitions, at venues such as the Mies van der Rohe Haus, Forum Kunst Rottweil, Kunsthalle Lingen, Berlin-Klondyke (Canada) or Kunsthaus Kaufbeuren. His work is also held by many collections both public and private.
This is Peter Krauskopf’s second exhibition with Galería Vilaseco. Throughout his career, Krauskopf has paired together the traditional and the contemporary through an abstract vocabulary used to construct vistas that, upon closer observation, in turn contain further landscapes.
Vilaseco Hauser (A Coruña) is pleased to present German artist Peter Krauskopf’s first solo exhibition in Spain. Elbe is a series of works inspired by the river of the same name, which traverses Germany and the Czech Republic
