Abstract:

Through his technical mastery of unconventional media, Munich-based visual artist Horst Thürheimer creates powerful and moving compositions of painterly beauty without recourse to traditional painting techniques. Created with the flame of a Bunsen burner and various types of crayon or chalk, his artworks expand the possibilities of drawing, plumbing the art form's full depth. This book reproduces drawings from among the artist's complete body of work. Themes of destruction and healing overlap in his{u2019}s drawings, each reinforcing the other's evocative effect and resulting in works of great elemental beauty.
