Jochen Gerner: Dogs
AN AUTHENTIC AND FICTITIOUS GRAPHIC INVENTORY
Dogs is a kennel of 200 drawings made by Jochen Gerner between 2021 and 2023. Each of these dogs was drawn with pigmented Indian ink felt pens on small-format lined and squared school notebooks from China and India.
Gerner represents the pooches in a touching and very funny multiplicity. This graphic exercise reveals to us that very little is required on paper for these dogs to breathe, each of them in an outstanding singularity. Braces, squares, lozenges, waves… The colorful patterns cut and cross each other with a disconcerting, always innovative simplicity to make their hair shine and ripple.
