Thomas Scheibitz

b. 1968, Germany

Born in 1968 in Radeberg, Thomas Scheibitz is a German painter and sculptor, working in this practice since the early 1990s. He attended the Hochschule fur Bildende Kunste from 1991 to 1996 and later was a Masters scholar under Prof. Kerbach. His work explores the boundaries between figuration and abstraction as he uses large blocks of dense colour, sharp unforgiving black lines, and layering of objects to play with the viewer's perception of depth and three-dimensionality. The resulting works allude to cubist traditions, yet make use of regular everday items, made recognizable to the viewer.
