Welcome to the "ThreeViews" world of Dieter List.

<=== Your navigation within the English part of this website

Dieter List works with plaster, more precisely, with plaster bandages.

Plaster bandages are an interesting material. They are predominantly used in the medical field, for example, to repair fractures. Today, however, this is more seldom the case as there are newer materials.

They are processed wet and harden on drying, then become very firm.

Dieter List gives plaster bandages strong contours and attaches them to stretcher bars. The result are expressive reliefs. He paints them in a special technique, so that the viewer, depending on the location and depending on the lighting, receives different colour experiences.

He calls this the "ThreeViews" technique and here you can learn more about it.


There is also another technique with which the artist uses plaster bandages. Here, the plaster is smoothed so that it gets a levelled surface. The bodies that List creates with it are more reminiscent of spaces, of architecture, and are clearer and stricter in their effect than the "ThreeViews" objects.
He uses the term "Pure" for this work and you can find out more here.

First insights and more detailed information about his artworks ("ThreeViews" and "Pure") can be found here, background information on Dieter List is given on this page.

This is the preview of the content of the documentation by the German TV station:

„Dieter List was an entrepreneur fort he longest time of his life. But then he makes his secret dream come true and starts to make colourful  sculptures using clothes pegs and plaster bandages.
Until eigth years agao, his life was pretty ordinary. Born in Hamburg, he studied business administration and managed various companies.
But then – more by chance –Dieter List dicovers his passion fort he fine arts and begins experimenting. His preferrred materials: plaster bandages and clothes pegs. He forms mountains, gorges, winding waves.
Living as an artist inspires him that much that he descibes himself as the happiest person in the Saarland*“

*Saarland is one oft he 16 states of Germany and the state where List resides.
