1953 - 2019

Harald Schmitz-Schmelzer’s work also hovers between perception and physicality. He submerges horizontal stripes of pigment into blocks of shiny resin, which resemble a geological rainbow of color. Sometimes they glow as if under a living skin, with the color edges barely distinguishable. Schmitz-Schmelzer takes pigments into the world of both painting and sculpture by solidifying color.
