Matthias Loebermann – Tiefe Oberflächen. Bauten und Bilder (Deep Surfaces. Buildings and pictures)
Architect and artist. Buildings and pictures. Two fields that are interdependent, interpenetrate each other and open horizons in Matthias Loebermann’s work. In the last two decades he has created two dozen subtle buildings and numerous works on paper. Both areas are united for the first time in an elaborately designed book object.
“The hand is my medium” says Matthias Loebermann. The transformation of material to the materiality of a surface, to a facade, to a spatial form and to a work of art, works for Loebermann by showing the making. Thus he develops an associative depth in the layering of the materials used, whose processing and joining always remain visible. There are only a few materials he uses, often only one. This condensation catches the viewer’s attention. It is impressive what referential diversity this yet light way opens. In the seemingly simple opulence as well as the apparent blurriness of the layering in contrast to the hardness of the setting, lies precisely this richness that his works want to reveal to the viewer. (Wolfgang Brune in Matthias Loebermann – Deep Surfaces. Buildings and Pictures)
