2-TIMES  Art
Thomas Scheibitz,
The Hunter
in the Snow
@ Sprüth Magers, 
Los Angeles

The notion of “hunting”
is a nod to the restless
movements of these
images as they seek
their final state, as well
as to the concept of
chasing down one’s
dream in the star-struck
city of Los Angeles

1968 – Radeberg, Germany. 

Lives & works: 
Berlin, Germany. 

The exhibition:
is Scheibitz's first
solo show in Los Angeles
since 2001, featuring
a selection of recent
works that display the
breadth of subjects,
references, and visual
tropes which circulate
within the artist’s wide
ranging practice.

Informed by the systems
and codes that structure 
both the world and our
understanding of it, his
paintings and sculptures
present complexly
layered, tectonic spaces
in which forms & figures
hang in careful balance
with one another. 

His forms hover at the 
border of universality 
and invention: they 
look familiar, but also 
strange and new.”
