Peter Roehr considers repetition a means of creating an awareness of what otherwise remains unrecognizable in the everyday use of signs and images. Serial aggregation only causes an apparent removal of these things' meaning. The initial loss of meaning is followed by a more conscious perception. Roehr's works appear balanced, there is no beginning and no ending, they are without hierarchy and as such free of an y tension: 'The picture has no focal point, it happens everywhere."
