Christian Lemmerz: Resurrection

18 May – 23 June 2012

”Drawing is handwriting, memory lane, utopia, pathos and absurdity.
The hand must write wrong images, landscapes, anatomy, a recurring obsession.
White paper,charred wood, red soil.
The dirty space, dumb lines, floating bodies, abstract pain, numb fear and geometry.
Between nothing and all lies hope”

Christian Lemmerz, May 2012
