DRAW­INGS D01.0

Inside the draw­ings of Thomas Steffens.

I would like to make a few dis­tinc­tions in the draw­ings. There are high­ly com­plex draw­ings, dig­i­tal draw­ings, sim­ple draw­ings, post­card projects, maybe even more, let’s start with that.

HIGH­LY COM­PLEX DRAWINGS

GET­TING INTO THE DEEP…

D_01.1

… take a look inside the portfolio.

What is in the draw­ings is the image of my visu­al inter­ests: the old mas­ters,  hyponot­ic pat­terns and raports, the absurd, sur­re­al­ism, the mix the ages, the mean­ing of life, music & poetry …

DIG­I­TAL DRAWINGS

DIG­I­TAL DRAWINGS

TO LEAVE THE TRA­DI­TION­AL BEHIND…

… with a draw­ing tech­nique that breaks away from ana­logue and real mate­r­i­al, oth­er works are created.

In the dig­i­tal space there are also motifs to choose from that I use from the ana­logue point of view, but there are options that are only avail­able here. Look inside.

Abstrac­tion and reduc­tion vs. abstrac­tion and abundance.…

SIM­PLE DRAWINGS

REDUC­TION…

SIM­PLE DRAWINGS

REDUC­TION…

… I am seduced to reduce every­thing, the size, the com­plex­i­ty, the col­ors, the pro­tag­o­nists, the idea, the concept.

Take some­thing out of the abun­dance to see it dif­fer­ent­ly. State­ments change, not that the lee­way is get­ting small­er, they are just different.

Sam­pling motifs is eas­i­er if the con­tent is not too complicated.
