‘Drawings’ sees a distinct departure in visual style for NYC based, Danish artist Asger Carlsen. Earlier bodies of work, such as ‘Hester’ and ‘Baxter’, although surreal and bizarre, are unmistakably of a camera. Drawings, however, leaves few clues as to whether Carlsen has abandoned a photographic practice altogether as the reader is presented with images, the surfaces of which, seem to be made up of marble, clay, cellophane and meat.

The book is designed in a way that allows it to be re-worked and used as a canvas for new concepts. Thus, over time, copies will be altered in different ways and made available to the public. First re-working is by the artist himself with the use of watercolours: Drawings, watercolour edition.
