About

Dirk Stewen will start the year 2009 at c/o ? Atle Gerhardsen with new works on paper. The show is titled 'droplets', comprising about thirty watercolours, some of which include installation components.

Working with watercolour on paper from the post-war era ? the artist uses paper containing potato starch, which has a slightly ligneous texture ? is a pivotal development in Stewen's work. The paper is mostly taken from old art loversĀ“ collection archives: the colourful reproductions of old masterpieces have been removed from the single sheets, often leaving behind a line of glue, usually including the title, and at times even a short interpretation of the absent image. Stewen fills the vacant spaces with partly figurative, partly abstract compositions.
