Combining painting, sculpture, installation and set design, Berlin-based artist Philipp Fürhofer (born 1982) juxtaposes different layers with mirror foil inside of painted acrylic boxes lit with incandescent lights or LED tubes. The resulting works—documented here—appear as small sets from mysterious and dream-like worlds.

Philipp Fürhofer (born 1982) is a man of the stage: the artist designs scenarios in light boxes that he hangs on the wall like paintings or combines into sculptural groups. Inside acrylic shells he layers painted, translucent substrates and objets trouvés that give rise to mysterious portraits or landscapes.
