The project «Die Skizze. Line and Figure between Abstraction and Description» explores two different approaches to sketching and drawing.

As a graphic designer with a descriptive and illustrative approach to drawing, I wanted to look more closely at the drawing process, in order to develop a way of sketching which allowed me to be free and experimental with tools and techniques. The body and its movement were ever-present themes which pervaded the opposing sides of descriptive and abstract drawing.

I produced experimental drawing series using observation and physical gestures of the body. I applied methods such as repetition, transformation and layering, in order to understand the epistemic process of drawing in experimental settings.

The process of shifting from analog to digital techniques played an important role in all experiments. The knowledge gained during the making of drawings, models and series is documented in this book.
