Matthias Bitzer (b. 1975), is a Berlin-based artist working with galleries such as Marianne Boesky Gallery and Almine Rech Gallery.
Almine Rech Gallery describes his artistry on their website: "In his works, the Berlin-based artist Matthias Bitzer combines drawing, painting and sculpture into an experiential space exploring history and identity. His works have become increasingly multi-layered over the years while maintaining their focus on the construction of memory and the reconstruction of reality. The source of inspiration and scope of his pieces involve historical personalities and references from Euclidean geometry to Emily Dickinson that have frequently slipped into outsider positions. In his dramaturgically precise, carefully composed installations, the artist offers dynamic visual networks that bridge gaps in our perception of time and space."
