Midissage of the exhibition by Rüdiger Tillmann

Rüdiger Tillmann is responsible for the breathtakingly detailed drawings that adorn the front and back matter of the EUROPEAN ESSAYS ON NATURE AND LANDSCAPE book series. He is currently exhibiting his works at the Wälderhaus Hamburg aus. A midissage with the artist will take place on 12 March 2024.

Rüdiger Tillmann grew up on a farm in the Sauerland region. The forest was always a place of retreat for him. At the same time, he also knew it as a workplace through his parents’ farm. Rüdiger graduated from the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg with a degree in illustration. He began drawing forests during a scholarship in Småland, Sweden, in 2016. This made him realise how much mankind shapes the forest.
The forest is charged with ancient myths and at the same time a place of economic interests. The drawing endeavours to translate and simplify. Unspectacular views of this cultural landscape are emphasised in ink drawings. They often show the forest as a commercial forest, which in its diversity can still appear to us as pure nature. In the drawing process, these different perspectives on the forest and thus also the diversity and simultaneity of open space and economic space are symbolised.
