Lot Essay

‘The drawings were never meant to be sketches for paintings, they were pieces by themselves. Defined pieces means they were not just studies…I don’t see myself as a painter or the guy who is doing drawings. I see myself as somebody who is expressing his inner experiences and his inner need in different media’ – Helmut Federle
