 "The boundaries of the material"

 Notes on the works of Georg Scheele

...With each new work, Georg Scheele takes on a tightrope walk between success and failure, whereat the failure can be one of craftsmanship as in the accidental breaking of the material as well as aesthetically, if he still rejects the result artistically despite technical success.

 

 The risk the artist takes with all the intellectual, emotional-psychological, artistic and material-scientifically explainable tensions in the particular work process, is in the finished work sometimes clearly, sometimes only indirectly perceptible for the sensitive viewer. But each of the sculptures documents the permanent approaches to certain pressure points that have been experienced in the creative process.

 

 

Most of Scheele's work since the 1990s namely quite deliberately stresses a tectonic character to a much greater degree, even with those sculptures, which focus the viewer's eye on a "lofty" negative mold. Where for George Scheele too, however, it is still about the overcoming or dissolution of static, the final optical result is, in the work process itself, almost always superimposed by the problem of how far the physical tension of the material can be exhausted.

 

 Despite their distinct form-finding methods and visual languages Cragg and Scheele still show something in common: both work process- and not just product-oriented. Sculpture is for both artists, therefore, defined not only in the classic manner of the plastic volume and the view through the cavities of negative forms, but above all as a "form-finding" and "form-building" process in which ultimately also the time factor is a constitutive component
