Hans Klein Hofmeijer / Joseph Beuys

'Out of hand lines'
(quote from my workbook-diaries series 'My second memory', HKH)


I would like to limit myself to drawing here, in particular to the drawing idea of Joseph Beuys.

His searching and exploring hand reveals content while drawing. He tries to touch the true nature of things by doing, far from having a pre-defined plan of intent. This is an important source of inspiration.

With a continued hesitating hand, where ambiguity is predominant, he finds his way in the melting pot of perceptions. An homage to the will to understand and to the open mind.

The actual drawn trace remaining visible on the paper, brings us a very rich experience of what is interpreted. Thoroughly feeling, thoroughly thinking, thoroughly seeing, thoroughly knowing and thoroughly drawing ensure that the sheets of Joseph Beuys are attempts to bring, in the highest possible intensity, the comprehensive nature of the subject in the spotlight. This is accompanied by a lived through, open approach to the drawn, also assuming that reality is always in a state of motion. These dynamics therefore deliver a very extensive viewing experience.
