Hans-Peter Feldmann (°1941, Düsseldorf, Germany) refuses to describe himself as an ‘artist’. He is a compulsive collector and appropriator of found images and everyday ephemera. His works have an aesthetic and conceptual simplicity, but contain subtle intellectual connotations. Feldmann intentionally bypasses the rules of the art market and high culture by making unsigned, undated works and limitless editions. In doing so, he resists commodification and commercialisation − making his work purely about the value of the art itself. He is of the democratic belief that art cannot be owned and that it is solely the viewer’s personal experience of the work that engenders its worth. Hans-Peter Feldmann’s work belongs to important private museum collections worldwide.
