Andreas Kocks

Delicate Terrain

Winston W채chter Fine Art


New York

It is no surprise that German artist Andreas Kocks formally studied both architecture and sculpture. His large scale installation works merge those worlds with sweeping paper brushstrokes, transforming the space in which they reside. Using only cut paper, Kocks uses the world around him as his canvas and thick watercolor paper as his medium. “Paint” leaps from wall to wall, in swirling dances and energetic bursts. Kocks is able to manipulate the paper to simultaneously appear substantial and delicate. Each artwork changes before the viewer, as you move about the room with bouncing light transforming your perspective. Kocks demands participation and provides something uniquely interactive with the most familiar of materials.

Andreas Kocks was born in Oberhausen, Germany and received his MFA in Sculpture from the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and his MA in education at the University of Düsseldorf. In 2006 he was awarded a Pollock -Krasner Foundation fellowship. In addition to exhibiting at museums and galleries in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, England, and the United States, he has received numerous commissions from private and public clients.
