Linie Line Linea. Contemporary Drawing

Malte Spohr uses photos of water, clouds, leaves, and light and shade, which his complex drawing process transforms into abstract pictorial structures. With a ruler he draws thousands of horizontal lines over each other. His method is very slow and meticulous, creating a disconcerting impression of fleeting movement that is reminiscent of both the processes of nature and an autonomous field of energy.
