Assuming the shape of high reliefs, Jakob Roepke’s geometrical forms rise up in sharp- edged or soft angles. The ensuing interplay of light and shadow shows subtle shades of grey. The effects of a composition vary according to different incidences of light and lighting, so that a two-dimensional image composed of grey tones emerges from the plastic body as well, and also linear patterns stretching over the wall sculpture like a grid of topographical contour lines. Jakob Roepke’s high reliefs form pairs and groups in addition to being by themselves.
