The works of Sebastian Wickeroth range at the border of painting, sculpture and installation. Simple construction material as drywall, wood, polystyrene and lacquer join to mostly to expansive, extensive interference into the environment.

Recently the questioning of the basics of a picture has become an important element as well in form as in content in the work of Wickeroth, besides the dissolution of the geometrical forms.

In the young collectors edition the artist picks out the latter. Two “a bit too small” glasses are integrated into a wooden frame and leave it open to one side. The glass of the frame is not any more protection to the picture but medium for the sprayed painting. Transparency, overlapping of the glasses, opening towards and view onto the wall generate a quiet work that changes between clearness and mystery, legerity and austerity.

Destruction contrasts the perfection of monochrome with a narrative element. The ruinous picture-space-studies suggest logic and causality of events that have never taken place that way. No built sculptures are destroyed, but destroyed sculptures are built. Something apparently hazardous, uncontrolled turns out to be dramatization.
