Arno Kramer b. 1945

Arno Kramer is very interested in the development of contemporary drawing. He is the curator of Into Drawing: Contemporary Dutch Drawings which was presented in the Limerick City Gallery of Art in 2005 and traveled to five European countries. In June 2008, he gave a lecture at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin called Contemporary Drawing - Trend or Development?

Artist's Statement:
Since 1995 I have been several times Artist-in-Residence in Ireland. I am very much inspired by Irish poetry. Once seeing a photograph of a shop with Christening dresses in the Irish Times, I introduced this image in the past in my work, alongside images of the human body - hands, feet, etc. I often combine organic, with non-organic forms, like screens and invented mathematic images. My work is layered and enigmatic. There should always be a "state of desire" in the drawing and I would like to make visible "the reconnaissance of the back of the soul, the spirit and the heart".
