For Dennis Scholl drawing is the art of reduction. The targeted abstraction of thevisual excesses of reality. At first sight, the work of Dennis Scholl

seems tocontest such assertions. In his monochrome drawings, which vary from small sizeto nearly monumental 280 x 200 cm, Scholl confronts

the observer with an"unsettling" delight in detail. His collage-like, hyper-real imagesseem anything but reduced, as one work can bring together

objects which seem tohave nothing in common but the pictorial space itself. He creates images whichdraw their strength out of the inconsistent,

the contingent and the secluded.Like emblems or icons, they allow the observer to discern a possible meaningbeyond the confusion they provoke

at first sight. But they reject a completeiconographic solution that would degrade the images to mere illustrations;rather, they draw the observer into

a confusing game with wildly varyingreference systems.
