Line Drawings…Hypothetical Drawings
Walking through I spied the above line drawing, (c) Markus Vater, in a (sadly closed) gallery window – and I quickly captured it, and Markus‘ name, with my little mobile/cell-phone camera*for me to remember.
(*my times are changing, I do also jot in a notebook)
Well today, I remembered him… Don’t you just love the drawing? The type of thing I want to put up in my home/office (actually I was thinking bathroom – like the idea that it would keep me in perspective when I have a bit of time to, ahem, think…)
I suppose as things are a bit more simple for me at the moment, perhaps I am favouring ‘simple’ art, too [the simple on the other side of the complex mind…]
While on the topic of simple on the other side of complexity + line drawings, I also learned good news about the work of a friend of mine – wonderful artist-and-more, Demetrie Tyler. I love his "hypothetical drawings"!!! And now, apparently, so does Moma, with a piece from "Hypothetical Drawings About the End of the World" selected for a Moma Group Show "Design and the Elastic Mind". Congratulations d! (Thanks Al for the connection). Some of Demetrie’s work – both exhibited and previous – is below.
And from an earlier series on Conversations (my favourite series – so far…)
I’m sad I am not in NY at the moment to go visit myself – they look amazing LARGE!
And folks – you had better buy up – being exhibited at Moma means soon all of us little people won’t be able to afford him!
(And another smile via Markus – couldn’t resist)
