Roland Schappert
1965 Köln

Roland Schapper lives and works as a freelance artist in Cologne and regularly publishes essays on aspects of art and society.

"Waiting for nothing." Roland Schappert

"The new writing pictures by Roland Schappert have a stronger appeal of swiftness and liberty in creation than the earlier works. One feels reminded of the rigorously trained sweep of Asian calligraphers, where each character appears as if spontaneously conceived. The viewer’s impression is to experience the very moment in which the brush lines become meaningful. This experience is further intensified by Schappert creating the same word over and over again, in ever different graphic variations. In Western culture there are no precedents to this kind of interaction between writing and image. And we get a glimpse at how different this culture would feel if writing had always been the way Roland Schappert writes." Wolfgang Ullrich (Text from "YOU, artist book", Salon Verlag, Cologne 2020)

"At last I read about myself
shot himself in the head
wake up dead in the morning
buying sofa
from the sofa
WiFi is breaking
nothing is working anymore." Roland Schappert
