About Me

My photo
Leipzig / Germany and Winterthur / Switzerland
We all carry information. Ordering and translating such into my world of pictures is the subject of my work. I often start with photo sketches which I transfer using different methods. This not only strengthens reality, it also puts it into perspective, expressing my current state of understanding. It invites the viewer to search for the core of the matter.

Continued to work with charcoal dust and turpentine. 1st 57 x 77cm, the others 30 x 42cm, all on paper. The technique allows very quick and liquid drawing

Was working with the same subject  twice, the first with charcoal dust in turpentine , 29.5 x 42 cm, the second with gouache , 12.2 x 17.5 cm. Drawing with charcoal dust requires very quick working, with no chance to make significant corrections. The outcome is much more spontaneous
