"The subject of my work could be thought of as dissolution, or more precisely the fetishization of dissolution within Modernity."

A wide range of pictorial references interact in Peter Peri’s work : geometric Modernism, Russian Avant Garde as well as literary and popular science-fiction find echoes in his hybrid two- and three- dimensional compositions. His early painting surfaces could evoke a certain reality of the architectural or engineered surfaces of the external world while, according to Neal Brown, the ones he creates nowadays come closer to those of a graffiti artist. Peri's works produce a specific sense of space and rigor, coupled with pared-down lines and shapes conjoined together, endowing his precise geometric constructions with life and vibrancy.
