LILIES & OBJECTS by Sabine Moritz

ケルンを拠点に活動するドイツ人アーティスト、ザビーネ・モーリッツ(Sabine Moritz)の作品集。2010年に出版したバラの作品集『ROSES』に続き、本作では作者が1990年代半ばから描き始めたユリに着目している。木炭、パステルやオイルパステルを使用しながら紙に描いた59点のドローイング集では、前作と同じく観察力や表現の研究、または、習作として取り組んでいることが多い。




Following her 2010 publication dedicated to roses, Cologne-based artist Sabine Moritz here turns her attention to lilies, which she first began depicting in the mid 1990s. Working on paper to produce 59 charcoal, pastel and oil pastel drawings, similarly she often approaches works as studies or exercises in observation and representation.

During the development of this publication, which was originally conceived as a collection of Moritz’s drawings of lilies, the artist had the idea to introduce another ongoing body of work – drawings of objects – alongside the lilies. These objects are primarily statues, statuettes and figurines – hand-made works of art from different periods in history, such as a classical torso, an African figurine, and a Buddhist head.

Moritz’s drawings of objects reflect a range of ideas and registers, moods and sentiments. Including the objects alongside the lilies opens up questions of time, life, death, belief, truth, human psychology and the very process of making art. What drives us to make art and what does it tell us about ourselves and the civilisations we create?
