Stephan Schoeppler. Creating Images That Take Flight

In creating his paintings, Stephan Schoeppler says he is trying to “intrigue the viewer with shapes and shadows, creating a feeling of weightlessness and flight.”

That feeling of flight is clearly seen in works that bring a lightness of touch to solidly grounded compositions. Working in oils and in mixed media, the artist creates a fully realized world from ingenious compositions of simple forms, turning an assemblage of rectangles into an abstracted cityscape, or a series of elegant curves into the likeness of a human body.

His works also cross the boundary between two and three dimensions. By attaching objects to some pieces, he heightens their sculptural sense, the open shapes that peek out also increasing the feeling of airiness. Having worked in the fields of design and architecture, Schoeppler has a strong sense of line, giving each image a clarity that is also reflected in his color palette, which offers dynamic contrasts while also maintaining a fine balance. Through his use of “unexpected details” and an original approach to his materials, he achieves his goal of creating “something beautiful and lasting.”
