Constantin Luser (*1976) is an Austrian artist who regards drawing as the most original of artistic media. The full spectrum of his work starts with and evolves from this medium. The artist makes collages, creates outsized sculptures, and is concerned with various technological processes, which flow into his art in their turn. For some time now, to supplement and continue the drawings, he has been producing filigree objects, whose materiality – that of wire – is suggestive of three-dimensional drawing.
About the artist
Constantin Luser was born in 1976 in Graz. After completing his studies in conceptual art and visual media in Vienna, the artist devoted himself to drawing. According to him, drawing constitutes the original medium of art. With precise lines Luser creates a fantastic pictorial world extracted from his sketchbook. He links and integrates the more or less bizarre objects, forms and figures into a complex system of lines. With his ‚spatial drawings’, sculptures made of brass wire, the artist goes one step further by moving the lines into the third dimension. The views of the floating sculptures alter and their shadows throw the drawing back onto the wall. Recently Luser has been using music instruments. By extending and reshaping them he translates drawing into an acoustic intellectual space.
