Thomas Scheibitz at Collezione Maramotti

February 2, 2011 by Georgia

A new exhibition by Thomas Scheibitz will open this Sunday at the Maramotti Collection in Italy's Reggio Emilia. The exhibition, titled Il Fiume E Le Sue Fonti (The River and its Source) will feature three large paintings and a sculpture by one of Germany's most well-known contemporary artists.

Drawing inspiration from everyday objects and symbols of contemporary culture, Scheibitz creates canvases that exist between abstraction and figuration. In his studio in Berlin he creates the setups for his paintings using found objects, and combines these still lives with previously made sketches and photographs, often alternating between different canvasses.

Scheibitz about his painting practice: "(...) it is imperative and always has been that I prefer a parallel working method. So, I have ten or fifteen relatively large paintings always visually available. (...) They stand next to each other and I work on them at the same time, always for a particular project."

In 2005, the same year Scheibitz created the German pavilion at the 51st Venice Biennale, the artist published a book with Other Criteria, called Film, Music and Novel. As the title anticipates, the book is divided into three sections. In the Film section Scheibitz exhibits oil paintings including the six pieces he created for the 2005 Venice Biennale; Music showcases his drawings, sculptures and work-in-progress models; the final Novel section brings together the artist’s most significant works on paper. The book opens with a unique essay-collage, mixing together a variety of sources such as articles, polaroids, sketches and personal notes, through which Scheibitz provides a deeper understanding of his oeuvre.

The book is available in English and German and can be ordered through our website.
