You can find the weird new things here:

The VR Space was shown in Bonn in September 2021 at Fabrik 45, an art off space, we had about 400 visitors during the show.

A short video about the VR-SPACE I developed.

This project was supported by the Ministerium für Kultur und Wissenschaft des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen

This is about the work of Thomas Steffens – All artists work is dedicated to pure subjectivity, it’s a trip into your mind.

Different artistic fields are what I focus on. At the moment I spend most of my time drawing and developing a VR-Project to make my work tangible in a virtual space.

PAINTING

„I AM (more than) A PAINTER…

PAINTING

„I AM (more than) A PAINTER…

P.01.1

… even if I don’t paint very often. Actually, my ideal is to paint huge pictures, but since I am interested in many artistic fields, painting is only a small part of my oeuvre.

The truth is: I am a painter.“

THOMAS STEFFENS

I paint without a style. That seems strange, but it has results that open rooms instead of closing them. Each picture has its own approach. The question I ask myself is: can I rule out repetitions? If I want to exclude repetition, my latest approach is, maybe a return to painting that goes more in depth than in breadth.

DRAWING

DRAWING
IS TRAVELING…

DRAWING

DRAWING
IS TRAVELING…

… you can travel these landscapes, they are best explored very slowly, that makes the experience intense.

My drawings are a kind of visual thinking. I let the protagonists appear in completely free association. It’s about depth and complexity. Getting lost in a drawing means that the drawing is fulfilling its purpose.

But there is more than the mesmerizing style. Get in touch with my work and discover what’s in for you.

INSTALLATIONS

MORE THAN PICTURES…

INSTALLATIONS

MORE THAN PICTURES…

… it comes from my interest in things, what is suitable is never clear beforehand, but I like to look at it.

OBJECTS, INSTALLATIONS, PERFORMANCE!
Crossing the boundary between surface and space is seductive. Other possibilities arise. Being surrounded by art can be experienced in an expanded way. I made room installations, created kinetic objects, performance-like situations, I include everything that is suitable for play in my work.

A space can be a temptation to find a work that fits in there.
