Stephan K. Müller
Stephan K. Müller's works are never inanimate, for they have many facets, which can emerge through light and shadow, the times of day and change of seasons, or the altered perspective of the viewer.
By restricting his sense of vision, he perceives the world mainly as an interplay of light and shadow. This is why the contours of various people are to be found in many of his pictures and illuminated objects. Yet, these shadows are far from colorless and rigid – they are vibrant and alive.
In the unlit state, the object is calm, uniformly bright and the figures seem to float in a motionless cosmos. When the object is illuminated, however, its surface is suddenly animated: with the aid of colors, the light brings the figures to life. Movement and joie de vivre, as well as associations with positive and negative emotions turn the object into a symbol of life itself.
Stephan K. Müller lives and works as a freelance artist in Bad Homburg. His work encompasses sculpture and painting, installations and performances – color and material. He uses the entire spectrum of artistic expression, seeking to understand the material in all its properties and develop it further from its natural form. His work can be seen in his studio and Galerie-Fleck, with its large outdoor area with integrated sculpture park and barefoot path.
