Manuel Rossner, Germany 2020-2022

Hand-drawn 3D paintings

The series SURPRISINGLY by Manuel Rossner comprises 100 unique, hand-drawn 3D paintings, each of which is available as an NFT. Rossner uses virtual reality glasses to create the shapes that refer to the classic format of portrait painting. The 3D models in this series have a physical counterpart in form of a sculpture and also exist in multiple variations, playing with different states of aggregation. Together, they represent Rossner’s research into the materiality of the digital. The physical paintings were part of recent exhibitions at Hamburger Kunsthalle and KÖNIG GALERIE/Berlin.
