PETER MENNACHER: VERNISSAGE
JUNE 11 to 26, 2016
Opening Saturday June 18 at 7pm
The June show of Peter Mennacher’s work included 2 large wood sculptures and some new prints.
The highlights of Blizzmax’s first show of the 2016 season was Peter’s 2 Arte Povera pieces, Retrofocus and Plein Soleil, on which he worked on for almost 10 years. Square and circular in form, respectively, these large wall pieces are made up of whittled wood. Plein Soleil, with 16,611 single pieces and recently completed, was shown for the first time. Peter’s whole print series (to date) of Hypolythe and Yolanda was also on display, along with a series of abstract pieces painted over the winter.
