Martin Assig

Martin Assig’s drawings shine with laconic words and sentences, which he matches with abstract patterns, faces, bodies and clothes in order to let intimate insights, remarks and quotes of the day speak silently to us. Full of patience and perseverance, Assig, born in Schwelm in 1959 and now a Berlin resident, creates small formatted graphic work sheets that a great inner splendour enfolds from, targeting directly the very essence of life. The exhibition “Glückhaben” (being fortunate) presents, among other things, over 200 works on paper from his extensive group of work named St. Paul, a series that has been conceived as a tribute to Paul Klee and has kept growing since 2009. Martin Assig participated in the 2017 group exhibition “MISSING. Der Turm der blauen Pferde by Franz Marc”.
