Gicleè FineArtPrint on Hahnemuehle.

Directory / Werkverzeichnis Nr. A44

Edition 3

My prints come with a 6 cm white "surrounding", which makes the framing / mounting more convenient.

If you prefer a "ready-to-hang-solution" - speak to me and for sure we'll find a medium, we both could live with.

The prices of my limited artworks rise, the further the edition proceeds. In other words: the first print of the edition is the best value - more or less a bargain, the last one consequently the most expensive. I consider this logical, because by doing so, my artworks automatically rise in value.

The series "Areas" is a great passion of mine, which has different faces and sometimes overlappes with my other series "Collisions". Both are about geometrical forms and areas, while in "Collisions" the bringing-together-dimensional-aspects is of greater importance to me. "Areas" could as well be taken from a plain area, where - for example - different colours meet in a certain geometrical order, which catches my eye.

"Areas Nr. 44" is a very special mixture.
The basis was photographed in the Martin Gropius Bau in Berlin / Germany at the doors to a Bauhaus exhibition in 2009, where a big round gate with mirrors welcomed the visitors and walls, pillars and parts of that gate were geometrical painted in different colours. I played arround with the reflections, brought back- and foreground together like in my series "Collisions" and just couldn't stop photographing.
Areas 44 then fell into a deep sleep on my harddisc, until i stumbled over it recently.
I worked on it, keeping the original order of the areas, coloured the two upper left areas on the computer, taking away any kind of structure by doing so, and added a part of a completely different picture from 2015 to the bottom half.
I like the idea of bringing two artistic phases (the changes might not be that big between 2009 and 2015) into a relationship by using them to create a new work. It's a kind of appropriation art as well: Using material, which pre-exists to create something new.

It's also one of my abstracts, for which I created the term "Paintrealistic Photography - Malereirealistische Fotografie".

Working on a picture that way, to me is like, what Gerhard Richter said about his abstract paintings: "The picture is ready, when I feel that it's ready, when it fulfills my perception of beauty. I keep working on it, until I'm totally pleased with it. Sometimes I even have to step aside for a few days and then look at it anew. If it doesn't convince me, I paint it over."
