Dirk Stewen Untitled (Schwarzes Brett 6), 2013, ink, thread, paper, gouache, paper streamer, inkjet print on alpha cellulose and b/w laser copies on rc-photopaper, 101,6 x 122 cm
Dirk Stewen (b.1972, Dortmund, Germany), lives in Hamburg.
German artist Dirk Stewen combines photography, drawing and assemblage. Drawing from his own, rich collection of images, the artist presents unexpected juxtapositions, suggesting enigmatic narratives. Faded photographs, delicate watercolours, confetti and thread are among the many materials Stewen has recombined into poetic images that are at once visually arresting and charged with emotion. Solo presentations include Overbeck Gesellschaft (Lübeck, 2009), CCA Wattis Institute (San Francisco, 2008), Kunstlerhaus Stuttgart (2006). The artist is represented by Gerhardsen Gerner (Oslo/Berlin), Tanya Bonakdar (New York) and Maureen Paley (London).
