INK WASH ON PAPER
Artist Book / Publisher: Kerber Verlag, 2023
Andreas Chwatal: Ink Wash on Paper brings together about 250 of the most important works on paper by the Munich-based artist (b. 1982) from over the last seventeen years. The artworks, some of them drawn in minute detail, are part of a continuous, fictitious pictorial narrative, which is presented in full for the first time here. With a text section featuring art-historical analysis, an interview with the artist, and a comprehensive overview of all works shown, this first monograph is like a catalogue raisonné of Chwatal’s oeuvre. At the same time, it illuminates the narrative style and method of ink wash drawing, which is highly distinctive in contemporary art.
