Stefan Strumbel

Nov 12, 2015


The internationally renown German artist Stefan Strumbel is presenting a new solo show in his place of born and living, Offenburg. The Städtische Galerie Offenburg is displaying for the first time the industrial inspired works of the artist who positions himself in between Pop Art, Minimal Art and Conceptual Art.

A vacation like rubber ring adorn of a palm tree, a classical fast food menu, a knock over trash can. All items reproduced by Strumbel are tinted with consumer culture, they are ‘objets trouvés’ as he call them. But these short-lived objects are made eternal through their aluminum cover. These contemporary sill lives are inspired by the 1970s Minimal art movement. They are a comment about the everyday visuals that cross our gaze and that take another perspective through Strumbel’s mechanical reproduction.

Along with these sculptures, an expected neon sculptures in replaced by metal in a state that prevents it to light and ‘wrapped’ canvas play with the spectator assumption. The major force of Strumbel’s works.
