I am Weibach2, birth name Oliver Neumann. I am a self-taught artist currently living in Wilhelmshaven, Germany.
In 2017 I began making decorative objects, and found they would sell well. But it was Lee Bontecou’s wall sculptures that introduced me to the art world, in 2019. I was fascinated by the holes, cavities and synergies between nature and fiction in her organic sculptures.
What really captures my attention are the traces of use and age, decay, the imperfect, and the stories behind them. What has happened? What else might happen?
Personally, I focus on three phases: emergence, development and disintegration. These phases might involve an object, an organism or a system. Everything comes and goes.
I usually build my objects at home or in my garden studio, mainly from materials such as concrete, wood, metal, clay and paper.
I am Weibach2. I still have many paths to explore. I will keep you updated!
