Tutu drawings

Tutu drawings

Tutu drawings at Franfrantou gallery in Berlin, Germany.

There’s a common custom in Berlin, to leave unwanted items that might be useful to other people, in a cardboard box outside your house. In this way I acquired a child’s tutu dress.

The exhibition ‘A slice of life’ at Franfrantou focused on ideas of mortality. As the drawings float and dance they conjure feelings of life and energy.

The artwork comprises of drawings in oil pastel on two different types of paper, one is glued to cardboard while the other floats freely, with cut-out drawing glued to it.

Plastic bag and leaf drawings.

Leaf and plastic bag drawings. Oil pastel on paper on cardboard.When I see nature I like, I sometimes put it in a plastic bag and take it home. That’s a typical modern experience of nature.This composite drawing compromises of studies of various types of leaves found in Berlin and a blue plastic bag, used to collect the leaves.The final piece of work is displayed using pieces of cardboard to hold the drawings out, away from the wall.

The leaves were created from drawings on coloured paper, which were then cutaway to reveal different coloured paper behind.

Knife rain drawings

Knife storm @ Franfrantou These are drawings of 9 different knives in 6 different colours.

The knives were drawn turning to produce drawings from different angles. The drawings were cut-out on cardboard and secured to the wall to create a rain of knives, albeit made beautiful by a rainbow of colour.

Berlin Objekte
An Exhibition of drawings by Paul Doeman.
———————————————————

Paul is visual artist from London, England, who has spent the past 6 weeks in Berlin drawing objects from everyday life, including bags from supermarkets and Apotheke’s and a tricycle from a Sunday flea market in an OBI carpark.

When drawing these objects Paul tries to retain some of the characteristics of the original objects, their size, colour, perhaps even some of the qualities of the materials the original items are made of. Most apparent is the three-dimensional nature of the drawings. Each drawing is cut-out. and arranged to further portray something about the original object(s).

All drawings are drawn in oil pastel, on paper and glued to cardboard.
