Andreas Kocks received an MFA in Sculpture from Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in 1989, two years after his BFA in Integration of Fine Art and Architecture. The focus of his work is the integration of fine art and architecture, and his favorite material for this is heavy watercolor paper.
Cutting it up and then installing multiple layers on the site, he transforms the paper from a flat geometric surface into what he fondly dubs a ‘territorial surface’ which shimmers, twists and curls, with shadows cast over the lines of each bas relief. He invites the viewer to move and change their position thus modifying his or her viewpoint.
Kocks divides his time between studios in New York City and Munich. His is exhibited extensively across Europe and the United States.
