Through his superb technical mastery of unconventional media, Munich-based visual artist Horst Thürheimer creates powerful and moving compositions of painterly beauty without recourse to traditional painting techniques. Created with the flame of a Bunsen burner and various types of crayon or chalk, his artworks expand the possibilities of drawing, plumbing the art form’s full depth.
           
Horst Thürheimer: Fire and Chalk reproduces drawings from among the artist’s complete body of work, including Thürheimer’s most recent works. Themes of destruction and healing overlap in Thürheimer’s drawings, each reinforcing the other’s evocative effect and resulting in works of great elemental beauty.
           
With seventy full-color illustrations, this volume offers readers insight into the development of an intriguing new artistic technique.
