The artistic approach of Andreas Schmid is a situative and temporary one. He works on existing spaces as transitory places between external and internal perception, which develop as the onlooker moves in space. For the interpretation of ‘latent’ spaces, he primarily uses lines which are tautened or bonded, drawn, painted, cut, photographed or laid. “I react first mentally and visually and only then actively to a space and its major features and in a way I reinforce its characteristics which I have perceived and processed.” (A.S.) Andreas Schmid has developed a draughts-man’s atmospheric overall concept for his exhibitions, in a close dialogue with the architecture, often as well with musicians. He picks up the various qualities of the space and makes them more precise: the relationship between internal and external space, perspective dynamics and formal unity, light and shade, dull and reflecting surfaces etc.
