Simon Schubert Gallery Art

Simon Schubert is best known for creating intricate works by meticulously creasing a single sheet of paper into flattened images of real or imagined interiors. Typically grand, the ballrooms, coffered ceilings, stately staircases, mirrored corridors, and doorways he depicts are realistic yet illusory. Void of any human trace, they reflect notions of isolation, loneliness, and loss.


The style of Schubert’s interiors remain influenced by 19th Century Danish painter, Vilhelm Hammershoi, who employed low-key tones of grays to create a somber interior environment. Schubert works with similar tonalities, focusing on the scenes incoming natural window light and the shadows that play on his paper floors and walls. We step into these interiors both meditative and haunting, embracing their elegance while searching for meaning and our place in the world. 


Schubert has exhibited his works in a number of international galleries and institutions including Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Wolfsburg, Germany, Foley gallery, New York City, USA, Museum für Konkrete Kunst, Germany, Centre d´art contemporain Meymac, Meymac, France, Kunstverein Bregenz, Bregenz, Austria, and Galerie Thomas Modern, Munich.
