Thomas Scheibitz
German, b. 1968
Follow

Thomas Scheibitz infuses traditional genres of landscape, still life, and portraiture with abstraction, painting with inventive color, shallow depth, and playful perspective. Scheibitz culls images from an array of sources, from Renaissance paintings to contemporary cartoons, mass media, and graphic design. With a digital camera and a small sketchbook, Scheibitz transforms the images into a system of dynamic geometry and symbols, which he converts into the basis for paintings and sculptures. Stilleben 28 (2009/11) is an example of Scheibitz’s playful ambiguity: the viewer is uncertain whether the central figure is an abstract shape or a mimetic painting of an abstract sculpture.
