Thomas Röthel

Ansbach, 1969

Thomas Röthel was born in 1969 in Ansbach (Germany). After his education as wood sculptor he studied from 1992 to 1998 at the Art Academy in Nürmberg in Prof. Johannes P. Hölzinger's class. Today Röthel's signature material consists in solid steal; he transforms the material into delicate, seemingly fragile plastics. His steal sculptures vary according to the perspective they are observed from, therefore they are constantly subtly influenced by different lights and spatial perception.
