With a practice rooted in a passion to delineate his intimate surroundings with pencil, Steven Baelen has cometo understand drawing in all its fragility and ephemerality. These works offer a close look at domesticity void of humans.
If Baelen could, he would draw every detail of the room, scrutinizing every element of its construction as he want to capture all the aspects of that fleeting moment. But that juncture is impermanent. Thus from the first drawn line a fight starts with a fleeting moment. The more marks that appear on his sheet of paper, the more the inner logic of the paper becomes imminent. The greater the time he dedicates within the created reality of
his drawing space, the more information he leaves out from the observable scene. The paper starts to generate
voids. As a result the drawings melt and merge in one’s psyche, not on the page.
