Exhibition view

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.

Matthias says:
“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.”
