With his new series, BARA, Ruudt Peters has created a series of graphite objects all of which center around the subject of emerging darkness. The shaped forms follow Mircea Eliade’s reconstruction of ideas for cosmic origin. Hence, these small, secluded, and shadowed objects at the verge between hollowness and hallowing seemingly introduce a material and profane transcendence into the world of aesthetics and artistic objects.
