Peter Hildebrand's paintings examine mortality, and the alarming fragility of the human body, referencing industrial imagery and architecture as metaphors for issues of vulnerability, safety, and security. Functioning as both organic and mechanical objects, these structures represent living entities, fortified from within, and allude to unstable systems of flow and exchange. Self contained and isolated, nourishment and necessities flow in and out to maintain equilibrium and health. Like the body, these structures suffer various diseases, grow old, and crumble. These works are intended to convey a sense of precariousness about our ability to protect ourselves, both internally and externally, psychically and physically, and to question the systems we've established to ensure this protection. In this coherent yet frustating association, healludes to the visceral reality of site specific earthworks, such as Robert Smithson's Monuments of Passaic, and to repetitive, austere architectural imagery, such as the photographs of Bernd and Hilla Becher. The surface and the palate that he creates (using tar, joint compound, latex, and enamel paint) are integral in developing his ideas of industrial/biological hybrids.
