Drawings by Olaf Breuning

July 30, 2012

We have featured Olaf Breuning's work in our magazine in the past (the May 2011 interview is online for you to see here), but the topic of his drawings has not been a main focus. Breuning is known primarily for his practice in installation, sculpture, and photography, but his drawings are a delight as well. Themes around primal urges like companionship, ritual, violence, and sexuality are ubiquitous through out his practice; this does not exclude his drawings, and here we sample some them that deliver this fine line of humor and painful truth of human behavior.
