Dirk Lange creates large-scale drawings. They depict unnaturally sized characters. The dimensions of his works and their representations are astounding, because the motifs chosen by the artist make the works look like small-scale illustrations from the nineteenth and early twentieth century. Moreover, their playful ornaments are very meticulously finished in both pencil and colour pencils, and ink. At first, they can be associated with something romantic, like the works of ancient masters, but when looked upon closely, that first impression fades away.
