ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
The paintings of Thomas Wachholz create a dense visual net of formal traces and personal memories, structured through opaque color fields, iconic symbols like stars or clouds and grids contoured by geometric outlines. Exploring the hidden dimensions of everyday materials, Wachholz’s recent work appropriates the formal layouts of matchboxes and matchbooks. Gathered over the years in places like hotels, restaurants, gas stations, cinemas, clubs or companies, the mostly colorful designed boxes shift the artist’s perception to an object tied to specific places of our former past.

Thomas Wachholz (b. 1984, Germany; lives and works in Cologne) studied under Katharina Grosse and Marcel Odenbach at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, Germany. He has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions at institutions and galleries worldwide, such as Nymphius Projekte, Berlin; Roberts & Tilton, Los Angeles; Raebervon Stenglin, Zurich and An der Shanz 1A, Cologne.
