Whereas “Art book” shows Arnd’s artistic evolution and versatility throughout the years in both his choice of materials and forms of expressions, this catalogue focuses on the more recent expansion of his “Bubble” series. For years the original “Bubble” concept, created in 1991, was put to rest. This particular project being very dear to Arnd, it always remained at the back of his mind and he returned to it in the early 2000’s. The size of the original Bubble was only about 30*30 centimetres and used five layers. His latest Bubble series are taller than a man and the amount of layers is reduced to just three. What fascinates Arnd is that although the original idea of overlapping different cutout basic shapes is very simple, it allows for an endless number of dimensions, materials and production methods. Continued exploration of these possibilities yielded several generations of “Bubble”; each similar yet different from its predecessor and most certainly delightful works of art. Changing the sequence of overlapping yields stunning effects and inspires Arnd to keep thinking about the next version.

“艺术图书”显示出艾恩多年来的艺术革新以及多面探索,尤其体现在材料选择和艺术表现手法上。而这本图册展示的则是他近几年对于“泡泡”系列作品的扩展。 最初的“泡泡”理念诞生于1991年,而后好多年艾恩都没有创作该系列相关作品。但艾恩一直非常喜欢这个特殊的主题,也一直没有将之忘怀,所以在21世纪初,他又重新开始创作该系列的新作品。早期泡泡作品的尺寸只有30×30厘米,共有五层。而他最新的泡泡作品有一人多高,而且只有三层。 尽管最初的理念十分简单,即将不同剪裁的板子重叠起来,但艺术家却可以尽情应用不同的尺寸、材料和制作方法,创造出无数作品。这点令艾恩十分着迷。基于这种不断的探究,几代“泡泡”作品问世,每一件都是令人愉悦的艺术品,而且互不相同,各有特色。改变重叠的次序也会产生令人惊艳的效果,这激励着艾恩不断地思考下一种可能。
