To draw the connection between each single work of Reichert, he comes to the conclusion that his intention is to relate geometric abstraction, the depiction of the process and its materiality.The process and its visible marks are the foundation of the final work and therefore the used material becomes elementary to the concept.
Different treatment of the surface and multilayering lead to new structures, surface conditions and colors, which couldn't be reached without going through these painterly mechanisms.During its development Reichert glues the raw canvas quite often on the floor to catch traces of prior paintings and to relate every single work to a much wider comprehensive ongoing process.
Besides the actual paintings the most essential point of creating his works are the three-dimensional objects he builds, which are most of the time not intentionally meant to be sculptures, they are tools within the painting process.The paintings and the three-dimensional structures are intrinsically tied to each other.
The works refer to shapes, outlines and signs he has seen before but they are always in response to the surface and previous layers. This stylistic language is drawn from the 20th century's architecture, aspects of popular culture, programming, design and art. But there is no imitation or direct reference. It is a much more complex and subtle relationship, which is very often not retraceable.
In Per Ahlmann's ongoing project – the ceramic sculpture – he investigates how three-dimensional objects in our immediate surroundings, more or less intentionally, are present and relates to their environment. As he states:
'The spectrum of the field of sculpture is enormous. If I would try to categorize my position, it would be one of working with sculpture that is about sculpture. I consider a sculpture to be successful if it is self-reliant. When it appears as a representation of something you ought to recognize, while being completely abstract. For a sculpture to evoke this sentiment it must contain credibility and possess a natural obviousness in the juxtapositions of the single sculptural elements and the transitions between these parts'.
On his working with the clay itself, Per Ahlmann says: 'Technically, I have great pleasure in 'tightening up' a form. It's fantastic to build up a volume of clay quite carelessly and then, in the leather-hard state, to smooth it out with tools, water, sponge, etc, until the surface becomes delicate to the touch. But the opposite of this is attractive too: the traces of a quick elaboration. It may actually be this very characteristic of clay, that I value the most – the way in which 'time' so easily is transmitted to and manifests itself in this compliant material'.

Galleri Benoni is a gallery with an ambitious yet relaxed atmosphere.
We aim to present contemporary artists working within a wide range of mediums.
We seek out art that excels in 4 parameters: Artistic skill, process, theme based approach and C.V. We will exhibit both Danish and international artists. We love many art genres, and will not confine the gallery space to one art form.
Instead we will welcome everything from underground Street Art, to a more pleasing aesthetic, and even show varying types of minimalism. We aim to uphold meaning, and a constant red thread, despite our diverse choice of Shows/exhibitions.
We will highlight work that equally emphazize skill & process. The works you can expect to see in our gallery aims to amuse, and engange viewers on a sentient emotional and inspirational level.
We want to include, rather than exclude. We welcome you to visit Galleri Benoni.
If you are an artist you are welcome to send us information about your work.
Although we cannot promise to answer every inquiry due to an overwhelming interest.
