Christoph Loos
Rarus - November 02 until December 22, 2001

 

Christoph Loos uses cut, yet otherwise unprocessed log segments, the surface of which he completely works in relief and subsequently uses as a printing cylinder. As printing material he uses the paper-thin sheets of wood (wood sheets) which have been sliced from the log - the core of which is always used as printing cylinder - and which are initially presented in a spatial context in the form of work series together with the printing cylinder itself.
(Andreas Denk)

Christoph Loos, born in 1959, lives and works near Bonn. From 1988 to 1996 he studied sculpture (Freie Hochschule für Musische und Bildende Künste (Free Academy of Music and Fine Arts ) in Alfter near Bonn), philosophy (Ruhr-University Bochum) and graphic arts (Kunstakademie (Art Academy) Düsseldorf). Received the Hans-Thuar Award in 1995.
Christoph Loos has developed a unique woodcutting technique.
This technique begins with a piece of timber from which barely millimeter-thick sheets of wood are cut. The remaining cylindrical core's surface is worked into relief, thereby creating a printing cylinder which is used to print the wood sheets in black, white or transparent color. The printing cylinder is destroyed as a final step.
The destroyed cylinder has been quartered lengthwise into printing sticks which have been installed together with their respective printed wood sheets. This is Christopher Loos' first appearance in a gallery after having shown his work in many exhibitions in municipal art galleries, museums, art associations and as a recent participant in the group exhibition "IN HOLZ GESCHNITTEN" ("Cut in Wood") in Museum Bochum.
