8/ ART Gallery/ Tomio Koyama Gallery is pleased to present “Light and Tone: Paintings 2016-2018”, a solo exhibition of works by German Stegmaier.

Stegmaier creates paintings that consist of a combination of simple colors, and drawings composed through added simple lines and cut and pasted paper.

For Stegmaier, the completion of a work is defined by the very moment it reaches a state of autonomy, which at times take years to arrive at. While his drawings are created systematically, his paintings are sensual and harbor a strong presence. Both manifest as traces of the artist’s thoughts, and suggest the accumulated passage of time spent in their production.

This marks the artist’s second solo exhibition at Tomio Koyama Gallery following his previous presentation last year, and will feature a selection of 17 works including new paintings and drawings. Viewers are invited to experience the serene space that Stegmaier’s work creates.
