EACH LINE ONE BREATH 

“Each Line One Breath” is a limited edition of 50 free-hand drawings that offers an artistic interpretation of evolution through the use of basic lines.

The line is the initiation of any drawing and its indispensable prerequisite. The creation of a line demands the most fundamental and transcendent state of life: breathing.


Inspiration comes from the Late Latin inspirationem and its verb inspirare: in- from „in“ + spirare „to breathe“. Inspiration is the act of inhaling.


Starting with a straight line, each sequence that follows is created by drawing another line that seeks to imitate its successor. Concentration and the repetitive act of inhaling and exhaling during each line is that which lets the lines evolve into logarithmic-like patterns and layers.

The resulting artworks are reminiscent of waves that transport energy through every single motion across space and time.

Lines and the inexhaustible possibilities to see them assemble into different patterns are equal to the manifestation of matter and energy. Lines are everywhere to be found. They are in waves of sound and light, water and dunes, trees and their growth rings, rain or grass luffing in the wind…

I wish to abstain from any kind of social, political, economic or cultural commentary upon my body of work. My focus is one of scientific nature. What constitutes the extent and shape of my work is the very essence of life that I look to discover.

The lines bedded next to each other are an example of the stratification of matter.

PAPER EDITION

When I draw, I draw the void. Not the line.

I focus on the nothingness around the line. The same happens with myself. At best, my skin vibrates while I draw. A pulsing tension undulates through my body like an inaudible sound of energy. I become aware. I become everything which I am not. My void is the conjunction of truth and energy.


It is this instant that marks the moment of creation and the bare energy that flows through everything and nothing at the same time. It is not about what I create. It is that I create.

The act of drawing as meditation allows a space in which the human being and the universe, as well as the observer, can come together as agents of energy to achieve an inner-worldly transcendence.

From a cosmological and spiritual point of view, the resulting works are not an abstraction but the realistic illustration of nature.
