1985

About

'Hauser am Fleet' by Alexander Befelein- beautiful contemporary limited edition print of the city architecture. A graphic miniature etching has many layers of details - it's the best choice for small interiors. The print looks like a drawing, with yellow accents and a decay effect. Dimensions: 5 x 6.5 "​ - image size                       11.5 x 15.5"​ - paper size An original limited edition art print in excellent condition (new). You will receive the print unframed in a safe, hard packaging. The work is signed and dated by the artist and also shows the edition number at the bottom of the print. 'It usually starts with the drawing: a play of lines, sometimes strong and raw, but usually sensitive, delicate and feather-light, exploring the theme with my hand. Once the theme looks sufficiently interesting on paper, I use a fine pencil to form focal points, areas displaying a concentrated attention to detail yet still playful and detached from the initial object. Then comes the color. Brilliant orange-red, Indian yellow or radiant blue strengthen and accentuate these focal points, then they fade into delicate grey and ochre tones and disappear into nothing. Areas left white provide counterpoints. The atmosphere begins to detach itself from the drawing and creates its own symphony. What makes the composition so exciting is a virtuoso play with contrasts: light/ dark – warm/ cold - big/ small – intensified/ hinted at – detailed/ informal – line/color – sensitive/vigorous and so on. In addition to this I love to play with perspective, sometimes I add detail almost in the manner of a collage, I ignore topographical realities for the benefit of the overall effect, liven up edges and backgrounds with intuitive ciphers, symbols, and splashes and reinforce the sketchy character by inserting what looks like construction lines, letters, numbers or remarks in casual handwriting. A typical element of my style is to leave parts of the picture as a drawing, so that colored areas appear even more brilliant, and vice versa' - A. Befelein
