THE ARTWORK MACBETH
The drawing Macbeth is characteristic in so far as myriads of figures spread across the whole picture plane. The drawing was probably intended as a sketch for a painting & was executed during a stay on the North Sea coast at Nr. Lyngby during the summer of 1942 where Asger Jorn had rented a small fisherman’s cottage together with his artist colleague Ejler Bille. The motif expresses spontaneity, playfulness, experiment, all of which are significant themes in the works of Asger Jorn.
“Art & handwriting are the same. An image is written & handwriting is images. There is handwriting, a graphic element, in every image just as there is an image in every piece of handwriting. The border between art & handwriting is blurred in origin. Everything is a symbol of something.”
“The Prophetic Harps,” 1944
