Peter Weber

Originally trained as a typesetter and dabbling in playing jazz on the double bass, Peter Weber moved into the pictorial arts, studying at the Fachhochschule in Hamburg under non-objective painter Max H. Mahlmann. In Weber’s early career as an artist, he worked with paint and canvas, exploring imaginary space, taking influence from Mahlmann’s exploration of geometric constructivism. Since 2001, he has worked mainly in the felt medium (although he has also worked in steel and paper), still utilizing geometry as a leading element, folding large single pieces of wool felt into patterns without any cuts in the material.  His work has been exhibited internationally, and is housed in over 35 public and private collections, including Museum für Redktive Kunst in Swiadow, Helms-Museum in Hamburg, and the Landesmuseum in Linz. One of Peter Weber’s first grey felt pieces was acquired by the Frederick A. Weisman Art Foundation, Los Angeles, CA during the Art Fair in Chicago. Additionally, The Textile Museum at the George Washington University, Washington, DC now holds a special work by Weber commissioned by the Cotsen Textile Traces Collection in Los Angeles which was donated in 2018.

AVENUE ROAD carries a curated assortment of Peter Weber pieces.
