In Anlage, Thomas Scheibitz's shapes and lines compete for visual prominence. Through maze-like composition, he creates an architecture of illusion where depth, height and perspective are implied through planes which make no attempt to conceal their flatness. He uses an intricate system of overlapping to create spaces within spaces.
Drawing reference from artists such as Joseph Albers, Thomas Scheibitz adapts the Utopian principles of Bauhaus and constructivism in a contemporary way. Subtlety of colour and sophistication of design imbue his composition with functionality: of aerial photography or engineering blueprint. Through abstraction, Scheibitz dissects the virtual infinity of space and replicates its subliminal nature as two dimensional paradox.
