Paco Knöller’s minimalist yet animated drawings are brought alive by the book form
The lines in German artist Paco Knöller's (born 1950) drawings twist and shiver across the often brightly colored pages, creating compositions that evoke spontaneity while still retaining a sense of premeditation. This is the first thorough appraisal of his drawings.

This collection of "cuts," or woodprints, by German figurative painter Paco Knöller explores the possibilities of printing by integrating new materials like dimpled sheets and bit-mapped grids. Large compositions of intensively luminescent surfaces contrast with dull colors, leading to complex combinations and images that juxtapose large shapes with lines.

For over a decade, Berlin artist Paco Knöller has favored wood panels and cardboard as supports for his drawings. Here we see how the course that the lines and forms take when cut into wood continues to have the effect of his earlier pictorial concepts but allows new graphic pictures to emerge with great innovative power. Schnitte (Cuttings) reproduces for the first time Knöller's new works in bright yellow, red, blue and green.

Runing rampant and disparate across the page, Paco Knoller's drawings are formally consistent with their themes: night, sleep and the stillness of dreams. Presented here are works in the style he is best known for, multifaceted drawn works, which since the 80s have included large-format, colorful lithographic and woodblock impressions.
