"Explore the Colours: Green Leaves" is a large abstract (Diptych) on paper. It is part of the monochrome series; the only colour I used is green in different tones and shades. Contrasts come from white and black charcoal. The greens and the handwriting of the brushstrokes reminded me so much of leaves while painting, that I added some charcoal sketches of leaves and called it "Green Leaves".
The paper is a high quality artistic paper (Canson, 290 gsm). Both paintings have a small (1 - 1,5 cm) white rim around, so you need no mount to frame them. To strengthen the character of the paintings and their colours, they are sealed with a silky matte varnish. Both paintings are signed and dated on the back, the right one is also signed on the front.
2 pieces, each 140 x 149 x 0,2 cm | 55.1 x 58.7 x 0.1 in
The artwork needs to be framed in two single frames. Frames in individual sizes are easy available on the internet for fair prices.

I find my inspirations in colours and materials - for example in a beautiful deep turquoise mountain lake or in the washed-out grey of concrete in a city. Based on such impressions and inspirations I commence my work and my artwork often comes to life in little series. Each painting is unique and the creation and development of each painting is a time consuming and slow process, usually lasting many weeks and in some cases up to a few months.
My paintings are acrylic mix paintings, for example, acrylic paint with charcoal, oil pastels, pencils, spray paint and many other artistic materials. I often combine these materials with natural materials and objects from nature (e.g., leaf seeds) as well as with ash, sand or building materials such as grout or plaster.
My pieces of art are created informally. Each step builds on the previous step, leaving room for chance but also for corrections and erasures, until the final finished artwork has evolved as a composition of colour, shape, texture and surface.
Due to the complexity of my paintings and the interplay of (collage) materials, my works are not simply one-dimensional, rather they entice the viewer not just to explore them with their eyes but also to touch them.
My works of art are informal; they are my personal expressions of my experiences and impressions and each piece of art is truly unique and only one of its kind.
