studied art at the Akademie dBK, Stuttgart. He lives and works in
Berlin. He has shown extensively in Germany and in France, most
recently in a solo show at Galerie Wieland in December 2001(click
here for Galerie Wieland's website). The work is also part of
an upcoming show at the Stadtliche Museum in Heilbronn.
This is the first time his work is exhibited in the UK.
At the Centre
of Attention, he presents sculptures made of iron wires, which create
three-dimensional objects called Electric Drill or Pressure
Cooker. Any true visual penetration of these wire frames, including
all possible views and perspectives, is imaginable as they exist
as drawings in space. The lines become minimal shorthand for complex
plastic forms; they define an anchor for the eye, which is fooled
by the familiarity of the object.
