The complex sculptures of Roland Schmitz (*1972, Waiblingen/GER) are often created according to the model of a two-dimensional paper cut, which he transfers into multi-perspective and expansive abstract objects. In doing so, he allows himself to be guided by his artistic intuition and experience and, with his working method controlled by chance and experiment, aims to find a form that may lie outside his initial imagination. He then translates them into materials such as steel, copper, brass or bronze in color variations and different patinas. Roland Schmitz's objects captivate with their multi-facetedness and complexity, while appearing fragile and light. They are reminiscent of insect wings, flowers and organic forms. In his latest works Roland Schmitz cites classical formats such as equestrian statues and portraits of rulers. Roland Schmitz's sculptures are both ironic commentaries on art historical models and light-footed attacks on our sensual experiences and habits of seeing.
