Detailed description

Picture "Water Lilies VIII" (2019) (Unique piece)

In his works on paper, Thomas Röthel deals with the working method of deconstruction, which finds its art historical references in the famous works of Lucio Fontana.

Röthel stacks various layers of handmade paper on top of each other. He then breaks open and even sometimes tears the surface, providing a glimpse into the interior of these sculptural works on paper.

Original embossing, 2019. Signed and dated. Motif size/sheet size 78 x 54 cm. Size in frame 92 x 68 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.
