Thomas Müller
Drawings - November 04 until December 09, 2023

 

We are looking forward to presenting new drawings by Thomas Müller.

Thomas Müller is one of the most important draughtsmen of his generation in Germany. For three decades he has been exploring the boundaries between painting and drawing on paper and overcoming them with ever new pictorial inventions. His discoveries take place on A4-sized sheets, some of which he takes up again in large format. The list of materials used and the number of variations in which Müller combines them seems endless: pencil, coloured pencil, copying pencil, chalk, acrylic paint, oil paint, various inks and, of course, blue ball pen.

He develops his works in a constant flow. In the varied repetition of tried and tested forms of drawing, there are always deviations and changes which, when viewed later, prove to be useful extensions, or are discarded. Müller's artistic approach resembles the processes of evolution that have led to the exuberant wealth of forms in nature. His results surprise the viewer and the artist alike.

The exhibition takes this approach into account. We have dispensed with Müller's frequent use of hanging in grids and instead present the A4-sized drawings in a band along the gallery walls, interspersed with a few selected large-format sheets (160 x 115 cm).

Müller was born in Frankfurt am Main in 1959, he lives and works in Stuttgart. His drawings are part of important public and private collections at home and abroad.

Thomas Müller is nominated for the Kubus. Sparda Art Prize. This award for outstanding achievements in the field of visual arts is presented every two years by the Sparda Bank Baden-Württemberg and the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart. The award ceremony will take place in the context of the exhibition of the three nominated artists at the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart from 9.5. - 25.8.2024
