Thomas Kuppler

Thomas Kuppler

Thomas’ work is many things at once; painting, photography, poem and sculpture. Originally from Stuttgart, Germany, he moved to London in the 90s, where he continued to make work  and exhibit internationally. He graduated with a MA Photography (distinction) from Central Saint  Martins, UAL London in 2014. Meanwhile he is spending more time in Mallorca to escape the hectic life of London and fuel his  spiritual and creative mind. Through a fluid merging of practices his works are layered, deconstructed and masked to create  pieces which are both seen and not seen, where the overlays acting as both veil and window to the  image beneath. Series p veiled / [p lat] - polaroid latent Experiments with Polaroid by tracing their development from the latent image to the final visible,  triggered a constant experience of revelation and concealment.  Studies: 2014: MA Photography Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts; London (distinction)


[the artist] gives something for the eye to feed on, but he invites the person to whom this picture is presented to lay down his gaze there as one lays down one's weapons. (Lacan)
