‘For Franz Erhard Walther drawing is not a static medium but rather a materially fluid generator of work processes, conceptual experiments and imaginative participation. Across a practice that ranges freely between graphic typography, painting on paper, artist’s books, sculpture, photography, installation, actions and public demonstrations, the category of drawing emerges as an insistent presence explored through the continually transferable concepts of line, frame and action’.
