About

charcoal on paper (diptych) 15.5 x 51 x 1.5 inches each (framed) In the fields of sculpture and drawing, George Thiewes creates sharp, angular work with a focus on the interaction of light and dark. That interest began in the 1990s when Thiewes was working on theatrical set designs, where he had to learn to create the illusion of space through lighting. Thiewes’ sculptures are mounted on or in the wall and painted the same color as the gallery, making them hardly noticeable, except for their cast shadows. The sculptures exist autonomously, while also defining and interacting with the surrounding space. Theiwes explores shadow as a sculptural and drawn medium; specifically how the work changes throughout the course of a day as both natural and artificial light change in intensity, temperature, and direction. The angles created by light and shadow give the appearance of folds, an illusion Thiewes investigates in his drawings. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, Smithsonian Institute, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Chrysler Museum, Toledo Museum of Art, Arkansas Art Center, and Rochester Institute of Technology.
