I am getting ready for 11 straight days of work where I will be dressing 20 (!) people, but I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to a painter you might not know about. His name is Thomas Scheibitz.
Thomas Scheibitz, both a painter and a sculptor, was born in 1968 in Radeberg, Germany, and currently lives and works in Berlin.
He uses found media images of empty and idealistic scenes, and deconstructs them into abstract parts. He is influenced by the amazing colorist Josef Albers, and by the Bauhaus movement. His paintings are design oriented and are very architectural. He layers shapes upon shapes emphasizing their flatness, while also creating space amongst them. Make sure you click on the paintings so you can view them larger.
I love this portrait he did. He looks like a professor waiting to speak at a graduation ceremony:
Here is my outfit inspired by “Anlage” above. The composition is like a maze don’t you think? I think anlage means “plan” or “arrangement” in German.
