Tobias Spichtig
That Flash Took Forever


Tobias Spichtig (b. 1982, Luzern, Switzerland) is an artist living in Berlin. In his Gheist sculptures, which have drawn the admiration of the art and fashion worlds alike, Spichtig applies resin to disembodied outfits, creating ghostly spindles that recall Giacometti and thrift-store glamour at once. His paintings, which often peak from behind encroaching domestic objects (refrigerators, tables) at exhibitions, embrace a similar duality. By printing photographs onto canvas and then painting over them, Spichtig continues to evade. In this work in acrylic on digital print (all works are unique) Spichtig’s recurrent sunglasses motif is positioned as a tool of evasion, an icon of fashion and cool.  Spichtig’s recent solo exhibitions include Jan Kaps, Cologne; la synagogue de Delme, Delme; LambdaLambdaLambda, Pristina; Michael Thibault Gallery, Los Angeles; Galerie Bernhard, Zürich; Ursula Blickle Stiftung, Kraichtal. This work is offered as an extension of his current solo exhibition at Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin.
