Cipherism

To describe the style of her works, Rabea Peter created the concept Cipherism. With that she refers to the rhetorical figure of the cipher from expressionist literature. It functions like a symbol, but however, differently than this, it has no comprehensible meaning grown over time (as for example rose = love) but recieves its content purely from the emotional world of the artist.
Rabea Peter works with a huge number of returning, in her own cosmos established ciphers whose meaning remain, nevertheless, a mystery and are only to be guessed by the viewers. Also their arrangement is as significant as the colour symbolism. The focus lies on the emotional.
