Sven Weigle's acrylic paintings find the balance between hard and soft. Fundamentally graphic in design, Weigle's work foregrounds crisp, geometric shapes. He explores their repetition and the way they can change subtly over the course of a series in many different ways: in size, color, opacity, even silhouette and rigidity. The shape's simplicity and chameleon-like ability to evolve are Weigle's main subjects; like any visual topic, they can evoke any number of real-world objects and concepts outside the canvas.
Weigle is highly skilled in his technique. When his lines are sharp, they can cut glass, and when they are meant to be soft they are light as a feather. His colors can be perfectly saturated or airily diffuse, depending on the atmosphere. Overall, his pieces display a clarity of vision: keen colors, true compositional direction, and an innate sensitivity to exactly how much an artist should simplify.
Weigle was born in Wuppertal, Germany where he still lives today.
