Stabe virtuously renegotiates the line – the elementary particle of the medium drawing and painting. He adds them to surfaces, creating effects, not normally ascribed to these medias – they flicker, shimmer, shine in the eyes of the viewer to seduce their imagination to mystic illuminations.
Stabe’s meditative graphic of lines emerges through ballpoint pen on paper. Dense rows appear by modifying pen pressure and overlapping differently coloured inks, resulting in a sublime colorit. The horizontal lines iridesce concrete, distorted, as well as abstract subjects and surround them with a mysterious aura.
