Rosa Andante, ink drawing by Johannes Beilharz (2014)
This reminds me of a lifeline/study I made 5 years ago with glue line on board, painted, rubbed with graphite powder and scumbled with oil. There is a lovely loopy-energetic quality to this drawing of yours. Sort of an unfolding. Just great! G
Dear Gaby, so good to hear from you after a long time! Thanks for your comment. I’d love to see the piece you did (or some of your art in general). Is it around on the Internet somewhere?
Well, I have an extremely casual way of documenting my stuff, so my lifeline piece is not, and I have given it to an instructor friend who wanted it as an example to use as a prompt for her classes on automatic drawing/painting. Never got it back, which is fine with me. Was done on a piece of 1 by 4 foot door-skin. I had been fooling around with making temporary line drawings using wet turkey – twine which was too loopy, and grabbed a bottle of carpenter’s glue to try and make some geometric gestures, which was easier to make with the glue than with wet string.
Otherwise, used to have a website, which went away into the digital nevermore, when my friend and documenter committed suicide two years ago. My website was tied to his, and his widow tanked his digital presence in the world There are a few images on google – some figurative work. But I don’t want to our myself here, so send me an e-mail and I’ll reply. G
