Artist's description:

At the beginning of each image is the experience of a moment,
Some wishes to implement various imagecontents I cherish for years: During my studies from the analysis of various works by Egon Schiele it was born my wish to interpret the fall of the folds of a bedsheet . From the everyday, resting sleeping on the intimate gathering, through to birth, disease and death - always sheets are the basis of the action. They are literally the basis of very personal situations: Even the funeral may be accompanied by a sheet. And in all these situations it is so close to heaven.. In the works of Egon Schiele, the sheet is more in the background, it frames the painted people (see the example.: "The Embrace".
Even Lucian Freud (1922 - 2011) uses great folds to frame people, see: "Standing by the rags".
Hanging, airy and flooded with sunlight are the clothes parts of Gustave Caillebotte (1848 - 1894).
