Paul Thuile‘s drawings are mostly made in rooms that are destined for conversion or demolition. He draws light switches, washbasins, coat hangers, hooks and other everyday objects — that are present in the artist‘s immediate environment — from his perspective directly on the wall. Thus creating an irritating duplication of arbitrary objects of daily use. His sketches are slightly distorted — he stands very close to the surface while drawing. Both, object and image, are on the verge of destruction. Thuile‘s work only acquires duration through the photographic record. After the first volume „Zeichnungen / Disegni“, which showed works from 1999 to 2002, the volume „Staatsstraße 21“ now presents his latest drawings.
