In the 20th century, especially since the beginning of abstraction, drawing started gaining an as yet unknown stature. Liberated from its subservient function to other genres, it developed into a multifaceted, independent means of expression. Its versatility is astonishing; still, it is rather the exception that an artist chooses to dedicate himself almost exclusively to drawing, as is the case with Hanns Schimansky, born in 1949 in Bitterfeld and today based in Berlin. His artistic feat lies in the highly sophisticated handling of his materials and the characteristics of his respective techniques, as well as in the suggestion of psychological states and utterly free poetical contexts. Echoes of the natural, paraphrases of the urbane, psychomotoric automatisms, serial orders, experiments with the principle of randomness - Schimansky´s work comprises it all. This book features selected drawings in pencil, graphite, ink and pastels as well as foldings by Hanns Schimansky from 1996 to 2002, providing insight into his inventiveness, penchant for experiments, and the artist´s consistency. The artist: Hanns Schimansky, born in Bitterfeld, 1949. In 1996/97 scholarship in Paris. Since 1997, a member of the Akademie der Künste Berlin. Since 1998, a professor at Kunsthochschule Weißensee university. Lives in Berlin.
