John Yau on Hanns Schimansky @ Hyperallergic

John Yau offers a unique perspective on the work of Hanns Schimansky, an artist who was born in East Germany in 1949. Almost entirely self-taught, Schimansky makes drawings that “just don’t add up in ways that we are used to, and find comfort in. I suspect that Schimansky recognizes such comforts are an illusion, that we can never construct a sanctuary that is perfect for every occasion.”
