German artist, Andreas Kocks, works in massive and meticulously crafted installations of cut paper. Working solely with paper and a limited color palette, Kocks’ forms seek to evoke and balance elements of four artistic genres: the linearity of drawing, the painterly brushstroke, the site-specific element of architecture, and the physicality of sculpture. His installations carry a quality of movement and spontaneity, recalling splatters, marks and drips, but are carefully constructed from layers of watercolor paper.
