T.O.A.H

Thomas Scheibitz’ first collaboration with BORCH Editions resulted in the portfolio T.O.A.H., a suite of 21 works in a variety of printing techniques. The portfolio’s title is the result of a swift mental leap, based on a pictorial rather than verbal grammar, deliberately defying any direct connection between language and image.

Scheibitz’ interest in the print medium encompasses both the complex, time-consuming production process, and the artistic possibilities arising from it: He is fascinated by the physical resistance of engraving lines into a copper plate, and by the alchemy of the etching process. He embraces the specific conditions of printmaking, like the reversion of the image when transferring it from plate to paper; a phenomenon he refers to as ‘mirrored thoughts’. Conceptionally, Scheibitz is intrigued by the tension between the fugitive, rushed nature of sketches or drawings and their permanent fixation on a plate.

The work of Dutch painter and graphic artist Hercules Seghers is an important reference point for Scheibitz’ graphic works: Seghers, the assumed inventor of coloured etchings, depicted vast, anonymous landscapes, the locations of which he never specified. Likewise, Scheibitz refers to his own images as ‘open spaces’ – landscapes between abstraction and figuration, beyond specific location or narrative.
