Silhouettes of global cities give rise to urban landscapes in which architectural and organic structures enter into a symbiosis. The depicted fusion of nature with everyday objects or architecture into biomorphic forms, sharpens the view of the observer’s responsibility in the interrelationship between man and environment.
Uwe Tabatt skilfully makes use of the most diverse stylistic devices of modern art. Elements of Pop Art and surreal influences are transferred to the present and, as in object art, disused consumer goods are given a second chance as part of the artwork. The mounted utensils break up the two-dimensionality of the painting ground and become sculpture.
Tire sculptures rotate to the rhythm of the metropolis and Berlin as the spinning disc of a record player provides the sound. Movement is consistently translated into image and sculpture. The futuristic, up-and-coming urban landscapes do not stand still, dynamic organisms break up existing structures. As far as the tyre carries the buildings, the tyre becomes the epitome of mobility and dynamics.
