Artist Statement

MICHAEL STALHERM

Statement

The artist is working in time, with the time and against the time. His works shall overcome the time, while outlasting him. The artist likes to make himself infinite. Therefore many of my works are a dispute with the notion of time.

This was not limited to the medium of drawing, but it is for me atleast the most beloved and the nearest medium. I´m drawing like I´m thinking, feeling, speaking. Drawing is like an other, a particular language on its own level. My drawings should speak, not me.

The majority of the own works are the drawings. The previous drawings are dividing in three groups:

  1. The basic phenomenon of mankind (birth/death), man/woman, above/below, aso.) and

  1. The world of signs (f.e.: Cosmos of Signs, „Grammar of Signs“) and

  1. The natural science (f.e.: nature-art: „Termites-Project“, „Sea-Project“).

Since several years I´m concentrating me on the most simple means (f.e.: lead pencil), to achieve artificial, ingenious results not seen before. Being very exacting, to let the artficial virtuosity celebrate triumphs.
