1944 · Germany
Experimenting with both form and pattern as the main means of compositional development, German artist Thomas Weil pushes the bounds of abstraction to its most elemental.
Many of Weil’s compositions feature bright colors and repeated patterns that echo across his painted surfaces. Seemingly simple at first, the scenes themselves become mesmerizing as time passes. These patterns pop from the very surface and seem to join in their own rhythmic dance across each dynamic plane.
Born in 1944, Weil trained in architecture at TU Munich and is today based in Friedberg-Rinnenthal, Germany. His draw to art stemmed from his own family heritage: in addition to a father who was a painter and a mother who sculpted, Wei counts among his ancestors those who were associated with some of Munich’s most innovative artistic circles. Recent solo exhibitions of his work include those at the Galerie Florian Trampler in Dießen am Ammersee (2007); the Galerie Florian Trampler in Munich (2009); and the Kulturforum in Dießen am Ammersee (2011).
