In his exhibition "Earth & Color" at the Sprützehüsli Oberwil, the Oberwil artist Thomas Schmid deals with the theme of man, nature and society. Through intense coloring and contrasts, as well as deliberately used cracks and structures applied as if by chance, Thomas Schmid creates fields of tension in his paintings, with which he expresses in a profound way, on the one hand, the most diverse human and social moods and, on the other hand, points to the opportunities and risks of life: With spatula applied gloomy areas of earth and color, Thomas Schmid counters luminous invitations of hope. Man as part of a larger cosmos is reflected in these works in mixed media on wood and canvas. Small and medium-sized sculptures in wood, bronze, aluminum or plastic as further elements of his artistic work fit beautifully into the exhibition. Thomas Schmid is a trained teacher for visual arts and works today as a principal of the primary school in Binningen.
