Gespräch von Dr. Martin Steffens, Kunsthistoriker und Kurator, mit dem Künstler am 10. August 2019
Matthias Beckmann is a draughtsman whose work is to be found in the graphic collections of numerous museums. His series of images depicting selected sites and institutions are created in front of the motif – without any photographs, preliminary drawings, or corrections. Framed, unframed, and folded drawings of different sizes complement one another in the series created for the kønigliche Backstube.
“Drawing is just like backing bread. At its best, fresh every day. I like to start early, trust the eyes, let the pen slide freely, and hope that the lines will find their right path. Concentration is important. Torture unnecessary.”
einszueins – Kunst in der køniglichen Backstube is a project by Kati Gausmann.
