Tommy StÝckel

Born 1972 in Copenhagen, Denmark


Geometry, scale and perspective are essentials in the work of Tommy StÝckel. His fascination of cool modernism and science fictions novels from both the 19th and 20th centuries is reflected in collages and installations that represent a constructed future seen in miniature worlds and deserted sci-fi landscapes. With a precise mathematic technique StÝckel creates collages using figures cut out from catalogues and sculptures showing different layers and the inevitable decay of time. The use of materials as paper, cardboard and foam contrasts the sophisticated themes as deconstruction and chaos theory.
