(something different from drawing - revisiting some photo work - though I like to think of my photography work as a chance to exercise composition, balance, value, in the image… to bring that sense to my drawing work…)

Final posting of my photography efforts for a while - this tumblr is after all a “drawing” log…  the thing is - I am realizing the influence of my current surroundings more in my drawing work - mostly in terms of textures / forms, maybe even colors…

“We might say that there are two sections through the substance of the world: the longitudinal section of painting and the cross-section of certain pieces of graphic art. The longitudinal section seems representational; it somehow contains the objects. The cross-section seems symbolic; it contains signs.” - Walter Benjamin

About:

Matt Niebuhr - Drawings is a collection of personal work exploring material qualities of graphite, ink, ink washes, acrylics and oil pastels... The drawings investigate different approaches to various subject content (not necessarily forming a narrative nor relating to each other in subject matter) representing a range of work from realistic depiction of form to more abstract formlessness. I'm most intrigued by the possibilities of the accumulation of simple lines.

You can see a more organized selection of my work at www.mattniebuhr.com

Matt Niebuhr is an artist living and working in Des Moines, Iowa. I established a studio practice pursuing personal work in the summer of 2012 named "West Branch Studio". In the Spring of 2013, I became a contributing artist and designer engaged in making public art with RDG Dahlquist Art Studio in Des Moines, Iowa. The works represented here are personal works, works on commission and public art projects associated with West Branch Studio.

These and other works are available for purchase online, or simply contact me for more information via email: niebuhr.matt [at] gmail.com
