Der Sinn der Logik

Cou-Outs by Markus Schmitz

June 26th to July 29th, 2023

Markus Schmitz utilizes a technique called the paper cut-out, developed in China and Persia and popular in Europe during the 18th century. This technique isn’t commonly deployed in contemporary art although impressive international works regularly appear in exhibitions. Implementing a folkloristic ornamental style, these works usually come from Asia and their meticulously crafted decorative motifs are mostly symmetrical. Schmitz, while employing this technique, has developed his own style through inverting the negative and positive areas.

From June 26th, Markus Schmitz’s works will be on show for the first time in a solo exhibition at Heussenstamm. Raum für Kunst und Stadt.
