Convex Thoughts

357 Digital Drawings

Unique digital drawings from one of Switzerland’s most prolific artists of today.
Since early in his career, the Swiss artist Yves Netzhammer has used digital drawings as the basis of his work, which oscillates between sculpture and the moving image. Lines drawn into a space in abeyance visualize his figurative thought and beguile the viewer into bizarre, comical, and eerie associations. Netzhammer’s refined and precise pictorial rhetoric plays a subtle game that permits the viewer a variety of interpretations and continually evades the deceptive moment of unambiguity. This results in images in which complexity and levity, formal strictness, or conceptual proliferation come to the front depending on one’s point of view.

Convex Thoughts is a bibliographical space that complements its predecessor, Concave Thoughts—together they are a guide for dreamers and musers, an endless storyboard from an art at the highs and lows of its time.
