The drawings of Vienna based artist Constantin Luser are complex mind maps consisting of words and symbols as well as abstract and figurative elements. They remind one of geographic charts or blueprints of complex machines. Luser´s intricate drawings merge the interior and exterior worlds and blur what is reality and what is only perceived as such.

Constantin Luser´s visual reference to computer graphics is undermined with emotional content and by an impulsive style of drawing. „He draws a very fine and accurate line which transforms from a pattern to a formula, from an image to a word and from there to a narrative. It connects like a very clear thought. What results is a switchboard that defines different layers, creates structures and determines relations that allow a certain degree of orientation.” (Daniel Baumann)

His most recent „vibrosaurus” sculptures are models in the scale of 1:10 of a truly ambitious large scale sound sculpture project currently in process.
