Inner Freedom

Inner Freedom N°2.
Mixed media on material+panel. 
60x90cm.           

I am just coming back from a small exhibition of my work at the East Language Centre in Melbourne. It is always such a pleasure to have people really looking at your work and also so tense. And of course a lot of questions..... questions that are easy to answer and questions that are impossible to answer. A lot of
"why's?".... and some times I have to say : " I don't know, it just happened that way ..." And than I have to think of this artist ( can not remember WHO it was ... maybe someone can help me here ) :
" It might be coincidence that it got onto the painting , but it is NOT a coincidence  that it stayed there" ...

Portrait

Portrait . 25x25cm. Mixed media and collage on paper.
I have always liked to draw faces, old faces and faces with 'life traces'. I like to 'scribble' faces and the face suddenly appears out of the lines. Sometimes I am even surprised  myself who appears out of this nearly 'meditative' drawings.

"Charlotte wished to fly" Mixed media on paper.  70x100cm ( framed )



The paper used, is the paper that protected my working table for a couple of months ! The coffee stains and working traces just take the 'fear of the good white empty' paper away and gives me inspiration….

Nest

Nest No 1. Encaustic on paper. 28x39cm.
Something a little bit different today. That was the original first bird's nest. done in Encaustic on paper. I just liked to reheat the wax and to scratch inside it. A try..... but I could imagine a series of them . 5 or 6 together all in different colours , but always with the same square with words in different languages and a drawing inside the wax.

Schutzschild

Schutzschild. Mixed media and collage on paper . 25x25cm


Not a very friendly painting today....  'Schutzschild' meaning a protection shield in english ! But I like that in German it is ONE word. The brown paper is actually my lunch bag ! And I don't think I have to explain the painting...
