Biography

Regarded for his works on paper, Dirk Stewen has developed a rich and varied practice that incorporates aspects of photography, drawing, assemblage, collage, and embroidery. Drawing from his own collection of images, the artist presents unexpected yet poignant juxtapositions of forms, materials and ideas that suggest new associations and narratives. Faded photographs, watercolors, confetti and thread are among the many materials Stewen has recombined into poetic compositions that are at once visually arresting and charged with emotion.


Born in 1972 in Dortmund, Germany, Stewen currently lives and works in Hamburg. He studied art history at Germany’s Ruhr University Bochum (1992-95) and also attended the University of Fine Arts Hamburg (HFBK)(1995-2001). A 2013 artist fellow at Villa Aurora in Los Angeles, Stewen was also an artist-in-resident at the Chianti Foundation in Marfa, Texas from 2012-2013.
 

 

During the past decade, Stewen’s work has been exhibited at numerous museums throughout Europe and the United States. Notable solo presentations include Exercises at Overbeck Gesellschaft in Lübeck, Germany (2009), The Exhibition Formerly Known as Passengers at CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts in San Francisco (2008), and Sugar, Lump, Sugar at Kunstlerhaus Stuttgart in Germany (2006), among others.


His work has also been included in group exhibitions at Kunsthaus Bregenz in Austria, the Aspen Art Museum in Colorado, the former Arthouse in Austin, TX, Weatherspoon Art Museum at The University of North Carolina, Kunstverein Hamburg, and Dundee Contemporary Arts in Scotland.
