ROBERT SCHABERL
PORTFOLIO
INFO

by Anna Wallace-Thompson

Colours dance across the canvas, less like beams of light, more akin to flashes of lightning, iridescent and fleeting, crackling across smooth planes of colour. Robert Schaberl’s works, in particular his Zentralformen, are comprised of thousands upon thousands of concentric circles built layer upon layer, one on top of the other. They radiate out from the centre of a circle like an infinitely expanding field. The work spreads out like a supernova before contracting back in on itself, only to reach out again, like the tides, an endless, organic, circular, rhythmic process of renewal. In Schaberl’s work, each perfect circle is ringed with a fluorescent halo of colour, just visible around the edges of each smooth, luminescent disc, like the sun behind a lunar eclipse.
