Detailed description

Picture "Water Lilies IX" (2018) (Unique piece)

Röthel's works on paper are concerned with the working method of deconstruction, which finds its art historical reference in the famous cutaway pictures of the Italian avant-garde artist Lucio Fontana.
To achieve this, he layers various sheets of handmade paper on top of each other, the surface of which he then breaks open and tears at specific points to provide a glimpse into the interior of these sculptural works on paper.

Original embossing, 2018. Signed. Motif size/sheet size 108 x 78 cm. Size in frame 122.5 x 92 cm as shown.

About Thomas Röthel

After his training as a wood sculptor, Thomas Röthel (born in 1969 in Ansbach, Germany) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg and became a master-class student in 1995. In the same year, he began to develop his striking steel sculptures. The artist carefully places cuts in the evenly glowing heated steel, which creates refined bends and twists in the objects after the material has cooled down. These objects seem to defy gravity and radiate an almost graceful lightness in contrast to the resistant material.

Röthel's conceptual approach and his virtuoso handling of solid steel give rise to artistic forms in which dynamics and tranquillity merge and are become tangible in a fascinating way.
