Viktor Miller-Gausa's "Three Sleeping Kings"

April 25, 2013

Viktor Miller-Gausa's triptych "Three Sleeping Kings" are monumental vertical compositions and unfold beautifully in narrative and linework as you view them. The drawings represent dreams as they encapsulate the sleeping king and transform his world. The monochromatic lines unravel into seascapes, portraits, animals, vehicles and heads on stakes, all arranged in an almost architecturally constructed composition. Miller-Gausa has an incredible grip on his lines, evoking illustration and woodcut with each little hatch-mark. These detailed, dreamlike pieces are a pleasure to get lost in.
