Titus Schade

Text

The works of Titus Schade (b. Leipzig, 1984; lives and works in Leipzig) examine the nature of the picture and the pictorial space. In sceneries that suggest stage settings, Schade unfolds places that seem to be both models and theatrical situations, imagining a wide spectrum of very different architectures and props that invite the beholder looking at his canvases to explore a private universe. His works are not about reality; he avails himself of its movable pieces and rearranges them to create a self-contained world. Carefully controlled lighting reminiscent of baroque art illuminates the mostly architectural shapes and structures. Classical landscape painting encounters geometric forms in Schade’s work whose timeless quality renders them universally legible.

We are pleased that we will be able to reopen the gallery spaces in Berlin and Leipzig, as well as the EIGEN + ART Lab, for you from March 9th, while observing the protective measures. You can book a visit to the respective location under the following link.
In Berlin and in Leipzig, a negative corona test is obligatory.
