THOMAS SHEIBITZ: ABOUT 90 ELEMENTS/TOD IM DSCHUNGEL: CAMDEN ART CENTER, LONDON
An exhibition by German artist Thomas Scheibitz includes new paintings, sculptures and works on paper. His paintings are large in scale; the geometric shapes, organic masses and flat colourful components create distorted spatial illusions.
Filled with images collected both from personal memory and the media: illustrations, architecture, movies, television, magazines and comics, he breaks them down until colour and abstraction take over from representation.
Scheibitz offers a futuristic vision of a fast-paced consumer society, where nature and technology merge, and realism is replaced by pop design. His painted abstract sculptures also draw inspiration from everyday graphic design and popular culture.
