Thomas Sheibitz at Frieze

October 17, 2014 by Ishah

Thomas Scheibitz will be showing the painting titled ‘Studio’ at Frieze this October 2014. Born in Radeberg, Germany in 1968, Scheibitz explores the boundaries between figuration and abstraction, playing with the traditional genres of landscape, still life and portraiture, creating radical new forms that are graphically dynamic. When encountering ‘Studio’ we are encompassed by sharp lines, interlocking diagonals, triangular shapes, grid framework and immersive perspectives.

Scheibitz employs an array of research material ranging from Renaissance paintings to contemporary cartoons, magazine cuttings, advertising and graphic designs. These are harnessed through a digital camera and a small A5 size sketchbook. The source material is then transformed, becoming indistinguishable from its origins, and translated by the artist to assume part of the system of symbols and dynamic geometrics characteristic of his finished paintings and sculptures.
