Martin Spengler's exhibition Creatio Ex Aliquo shows his new reliefs and sculptures shaped from corrugated cardboard blocks using his distinctive technique in which he paints with gesso, and then emphasizes the cut edges with graphite. His works invite us to reflect on the changes and ambivalences of German society over time and to engage with current issues of our coexistence.

About the artist
Born 1974 in Cologne, Germany
Lives and works in Munich, Germany
Martin Spengler explores structures and patterns of order. The motifs for his works – contemporary cityscapes, skyscrapers, facades, towers and Gothic cathedrals – he finds in image files and sketches that serve as models for detailed preliminary drawings. Spengler is especially interested in the temporality and the fragility of seemingly architecture, and its function to represent social utopias and boundaries.
