Artist's description:

** For all of my works on paper, I am happy to offer combined shipping. Up to 3 works can be shipped together for the cost of one! **

I think of my collages more as drawings because that’s how they begin. I draw with oil sticks, pastels and pencils on large sheets and then cut them down into various shapes which I recombine into new colour compositions. I don’t try to ‘make’ the shapes, but rather just start cutting and see what happens. The images are intuitive; they reflect my emotions and desires or are inspired by something in my surroundings.

'BVG' is inspired by the feeling of frustration, of an itch that just can't be scratched - in this case triggered by a rather (in)famous window covering on many Berlin U-Bahn (subway) trains. It's a clear film that gets replaced when someone sprays grafitti on the windows. It's infamous for driving us Berliners mad because the pattern on it is a repeating line drawing of Brandenburg Gate- and it's the worst drawing in existence. The perspective is all messed up and even the bases of the pillars are crooked. To give you an idea, it's made one of those 'Top 10' Lists of things that drives Berliners nuts.

With this drawing I've tried to funnel all of those feelings into the wild lines and colours. It's a way to release the tension and calm down. The vertical shapes are a direct nod to the crooked and disjointed pillars on the U-Bahn drawing. See the photos of this work for an image of the drawing- but be warned, it's going to really trigger your OCD itch!

I'm happy to also ship this artwork ready to hang in a simple white-glazed wooden frame. Frame costs 60 Euros. Shipping of framed work at no additional cost to standard shipping rate.
