Tomas Schats - Video Testimonial

Uploaded on Monday 12 December 2011


Tomas Schats (1976) makes clear line animations and drawings from which everything superfluous has been omitted. They are miniatures created in pencil and displayed against a blindingly clean and white background. The narratives he tells are layered and occasionally take unexpected turns. Tomas Schats says himself: 'In their minimal linearity, these animations resemble cartoons but they are, in their simplicity, more lyrical and more ambiguous, wry, but nevertheless light-footed. They are based on reality, but transcend it is a subtle manner. They tell stories about humankind, with all its possibilities and limitations.
