German artist Thomas von Palubitzki was drawn to creative disciplines as a child. He began his artistic journey by visiting museums, drawing and taking up photography. Later, he worked as an illustrator and graphic designer. Today, von Palubitzki experiments with bottle caps, always creating artwork that is minimal, distinctive, and to the point. For von Palubitzki, bottle caps represent the everyday as they pass through everyone’s hands. Von Palubitzki translates the ubiquity, versatility, and enormous artistic potential of the bottle cap into his work. Von Palubitzki’s techniques are self-taught and allow him to innovate personally within his preferred themes of minimalism. Not only does he use the bottle cap on his canvases and sculptures, always creating a three-dimensional effect, but he equally uses the bottle cap as a tool, and paints with it, creating a texture all his own. Von Palubitzki revels in ambiguity, preferring its richness of possibilities to an unambiguous meaning. He is driven by the question of how he, as an artist, can create solutions to his visions of bottle caps, colors and shapes so that each of his works complements the other and fits into a larger picture. All of his paintings and sculptures are designed so that each stands on its own or finds a place next to another work, highlighting the natural flow of each of his minimalist visions through the next.

In our loud, fast and superficial time, quiet tones and minimalist forms are often more haunting and intense than anything noisy and obtrusive. For me, minimalism is the basis of creativity; omitting the superfluous and limiting it to the essential. On this fundamental basis, my own forms and color designs emerge. In my search for a means of expression that is bold and self-sustaining, I came across the bottle cap. As an everyday and universally usable object, the bottle cap has incredible versatility and expressive potential. It creates a three-dimensional effect, sometimes creating textures and cast shadows that are planned or arise spontaneously during the process. Although this object is immediately recognizable, the ambiguity created by its abstractness offers an infinite number of possibilities and interpretations. Each of my works is meant to speak for itself. However, I am driven by the question of how to find solutions as an artist so that my visions of bottle caps, colors, and shapes blend together. For this reason, I work in series. This gives me the opportunity to fully develop my ideas and to have a continuing dialogue between my images.
