About Thomas Scheibitz
Thomas Scheibitz was born in 1969 in Radeberg (Germany). He currently lives and works in Berlin (Germany).
Thomas Scheibitz‘s first collaboration with BORCH Editions resulted in the portfolio T.O.A.H., a suite of 21 works in a variety of printing techniques, among them his first etchings ever. 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.
