The core of Sabian Baumann's entire graphic oeuvre could be summed up in this sentence: Normality is an exception in space and time. The differences between cultures and scenes, languages and mentalities, decades and centuries are obvious. These differences cannot be translated into each other and cannot be eliminated. Individuals are unique collages. The 'I' is composed of different facets such as genes, knowledge, habitus, food etc. The substance we are made of is as old as the universe.
In the drawings, quotations from various aesthetics from art, popular culture, photography and Baumann's "own" aesthetics represent this disparate patchwork that we and the world are. Values are revalued through paradoxes, lyrical moments and humor. This concept also underlies the four lithographs from the series "Interpretations", which is characterized by drawing hands.

From the series Interpretations The present sheet "o.T. (wallpaper)" from the series "Interpretations" was created in connection with the exhibition "Portrait" by Sabian Baumann at the Mark Müller Gallery in Zurich (27.08.-15.10.2016). For the exhibition, a version of this motif will be printed on poster paper and wallpapered on a wall. In addition to the poster print, a small edition on Rive's handmade paper, numbered and signed, will be produced for the Edition VFO. The hands are quotations from works by well-known artists, whose names are on the right of the drawing. You can also find comic quotations. In these, the name of the figure is attached. The quoted motifs are changed according to the idea of the picture. The hands can be understood as portraits. They represent the artists and comic figures and are easily recognizable by the respective picture language. Each of these hands refers to a source of inspiration and/or is a tribute to the selected artists or their works.
