Opposites | Brilliance | Play of Colours

Wood, resin and steel - these are Willi Sibers preferred materials. Deepened in meticulous material research, artistic creations emerge which completely eliminate chance and show a sensual splendour, which shows the transformation of the materials in perfection and the boundlessness of its creativity.

Wood - Willi Sibers' pillow-like series of work plays visually with the opposites, associates softness and is nevertheless rough and hard on its surface. Thus the expectation is broken by reality. The viewer reveals a sensuous play between the great whole and the surface structure in detail.

Resin - In countless work steps, which are precisely coordinated with one another in time, Willi Sibers' wall objects are made of epoxy resin. The result reveals lightness, brilliance and playfulness in all its finesse in colour, composition and construction.
Steel - Sibers steel objects radiate in the splendor of perfection - welded together, the seams are elaborately sanded and covered in five layers with a special lacquer - they guard the technical secret of the production and draw the viewer into its spell: one wants to touch them, from all sides and listen to their coloring game in the light as if they were telling a story.
