Artist Statement
In trying to formulate for herself an understanding of why mankind is so eager to destroy, Raquel Maulwurf bases her drawings on historical images. These are manipulated in such a way that only the essence of the event remains. The image no longer shows what we see, but that which we know, making current events tangible.   Raquel's recent drawings have all been created on mat board. The thickness of the board allows her to brutalise the surface with sharp objects. This way violence is depicted through violence. The surface is scratched open until the paper pulp almost pours out, literally materialising destruction in both subject and method.
