During my university time in Münster I had one of the most amazing professors, Rolf Escher. He was one of the really important drawers in Germany in the last decades and he was just so amazing with his students. During that time – in comparison to nowadays – it was quite normal to go outside, to different places to draw and to sketch. Until now it is one of my most loved ways to build up a connection to a place and also to meditate. You get so far away from the rest of the world.
This work belongs to a time, when I used to visit the different industrial museums in the Ruhrgebiet and in the Rheinland. I did a whole series of sketchings in the Textilmuseum Bocholt, a museum for the production of textiles in many kind. In this museum you find old looms, a steam engine and so many more machines and things you used for the production of fabrics.
Honestly I can not remember any more what the function of this machine was, but it was so special in its form and colors.
The drawing of this machine has the size of 21×33 cm and is purchasable for 120 €. It is part of a series of 4 drawings in the same size. My short time plans are to reactivate this wonderful tradition and to search a mixture between the traditional materials and the work on an iPad. I will hold you up-to-date.
