Peter Schwickerath

 

"The relations of mass and space, the volume and space as well as the effects of plane directions in space are the subjects of my work.

The plane as limitation of the body, the lines at the joining of body planes as well as color and structure of the material are the means.

The unambiguously defined shapes preferred by me, like the square column and the cylinder, aim – in their varying order and the interplay of mass and volume – at the depiction and clarification of spatial relations.

My specific interest is devoted to the multiplicity of possibilities within a field of formal simplicity and austerity".

Peter Schwickerath
