For Roman Scheidl, art has long since become a way of life. In it he expresses himself, in it he finds all the explanatory models of life, which can also never be exhausted. Today he varies the different methods and procedures. In this simultaneity of performance (life-drawing), drawing, painting, ceramics, film, theater and poetry, this multifaceted work takes place. It cannot be pinned down and clearly assigned. Attracted by one, leaving the other, setting out again and again for the next, the result is a dynamic that can be read in Taoist terms and that asks for the way rather than formulating a specific goal.” (Günther Holler-Schuster)
