Thomas Scheibitz

Thomas Scheibitz is a sculptor and painter whose work, though highly abstract, often reveals familiar elements upon closer examination: buildings or landscapes simplified into bold and gestural shapes and colors. In his paintings in particular he plays with these familiar shapes and renders his works into patchworks of color blocks and thick lines. While his paintings are structured in terms of line and composition, the patchy and streaky brushwork often lends the imprecision that strikes an emotional resonance, sometimes agitated and other times unexpectedly soft.
