In Rosenweg Thomas Scheibitz doesn’t paint a subject, but offers a panoptic view as a solidified whole. Adopting the flatness of medieval painting, perspective is delineated through overlapping layers and scale. Flower, building and mountain integrate as an abridged version of space, a synopsis of grandeur.

Thomas Scheibitz presents the sublime as an algorithmic formula: mysticism denuded into a composite of shapes and patterns. A super-modern reinvention of the romantic landscape, Thomas Scheibitz creates a sense of awe not in the picture itself, but in the graphic simplicity with which such an overwhelming concept is inferred.
