paintings and drawings - January 23 until March 06, 2010
Right from the outset German Stegmaier is displayed the qualities of a true draughtsman. This observation is not prompted by the sheer number of his works on paper - although this, rather than painting or sculpture, is indeed the medium in which he has been most prolific - but by a specific language of cautious exploration and unrestrained immersion in a process of perception and transformation, which makes his drawings quite unique.
(Dr. Michael Semff, Staatliche Graphische Sammlung Munich, Germany)
German Stegmaier (born 1959) lives and works in Munich.
His drawings will be part of the upcoming shows LINIE-LINEA-LINE at Kunstmuseum Bonn (D) and MODERN TIMES at Kettles Yard, Cambridge (GB) and De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill, Sussex (GB).
