Christian Martinez Schwabbauer -Through the Looking Glass-A Portrait of Peter Doherty as a Visual Artist


The typewriter artworks of Peter Doherty are sequences and little windows giving insight into his mind and examination of the world. This is not only perceptible by reading the texts but also in the pieces of paper they are written on, giving evidence in many ways of the moment and place they were created in. The varying types of paper from different locations and cultures, its aged and fragmental condition, little added illustrations and imprints, notes with pen and pencil, – these features are all synchronized with the text. Circumstances have resulted in the texts as they have worked on the paper. As such these typewritten texts are much more than containers of textual content, they synaesthetically merge into the visual creations they are written on.
