In this way he limits his works in their readability and unambiguity. The empty spaces in the picture impressively convey the possible missing parts and gaps of a memory. The viewer must therefore complete the picture in order to recognize the content of the painting. To achieve this emotionally, through personal experience, is for Peer Boehm the decisive moment in the reception of his art.
