Eine flasche wasser bitte.

Eine flasche wasser bitte. A bottle of water, please.
“Eine flasche wasser, bitte.”(“A bottle of water, please”
Oil pastel on paper on cardboard.

This was a piece of work shown at the Bartleby exhibition in Berlin, Germany.

Berlin has relatively hot summers; in London Tube passengers are advised to carry a bottle of water with them, largely due to the lack of air conditioning in London’s underground system. I continued the habit of carrying a bottle of water with me in Berlin.

This artwork is both a portrait of a constant companion in a foreign land and a familiar friend from home.

The title “Eine flasche wasser, bitte.” translates from German to English as “A bottle of water, please”. One of the few phrases I learnt while in Berlin.

The work comprises of a number of drawn studies of a plastic water bottle, cut out onto cardboard. Each drawing is then fixed to the background at varying distances, to create a feeling of depth.

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.

The Nike Brown paper bag drawings appeared in the Berlin Objekte exhibition in the La Ultima Cena gallery, Berlin Germany.

Within a few days of arriving in Berlin I needed to buy running shorts and vests. The Nike Store in Alexander Platz put my purchase in a brown Nike paper bag.

I used some similar brown paper to draw the bags on to, with black and white oil pastel, cutout onto cardboard.
