Peter Dreyfuss

May 13/14

The omnipresence of such oppositions and tensions in Dreyfuss’s work is because of his primary focus on the simultaneous presence of power and vulnerability, on the unique and fleeting coexistence of strengths and weaknesses. The sublime, the attention, negligence, youth, old age, gentleness, violence, day, night, life, and death: the layers are multiple and the proposal complex.

The result challenges the viewer’s willingness to fully embrace reality. Once collected, the works take the form of fragmented stories, reflecting the extraordinary complexity of the world in which we live. They are recounted in a non-linear narrative where facts give way to perspectives, and truths to opinions.
