SIM­PLE DRAW­INGS SD.01.1

Min­i­mal, small, more con­cen­trat­ed, sim­ple works by Thomas Steffens.

Small and sim­ple, are basi­cal­ly com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent prop­er­ties, but both stand against my com­plex draw­ings, which first con­quered the field.

… draw­ing small for­mats leads to a greater devel­op­ment of my skills than work­ing on the large sizes.

It seems to be quick, easy and effort­less. You can no longer see the trou­ble, it is in the past, what remains is the glow of the fire. There is no wor­ry in the pic­ture, at least no wor­ry that goes through the artist dur­ing the pro­duc­tion. It’s just the hap­pi­ness of the flow­ers and nature.

… the num­ber of small-for­mat works should already be over 1000, not all of them are final works, some are stud­ies, but equal­ly impor­tant are evi­dence of a way of working.

I am still think­ing about how I can make the amount of draw­ings acces­si­ble, in the mean­time I will show some of them here with­out rep­re­sen­ta­tive dimensions.
Noth­ing is fin­ished, every­thing begins!
