potrait markus vergin

Markus Vergin is occupied since 1993 with drawing as formative medium. His initiation took place during an artistic orientation year and here particularly by his teacher, the recently deceased Beuys scholar Winfried Bodemer. Confronting himself with different artistic methods and media, like photography, water color- acrylic- and oil painting and prints he developed his passion for "autonomous drawing".

The drawings shown in the exhibition are the result of more than ten years of artistic work. The most important confrontation rose from a close connection to his
teacher Winfried Bodemer, who monitored him as an artistic advisor during his development as an artist.
