Artist's description:

Gicleè FineArtPrint on Hahnemuehle.

Directory / Werkverzeichnis Nr. 68

Edition 5

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. I very much prefer Aludibond.

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.

"Hovering Red" was photographed in the Nicolaisaal in Potsdam / Germany on an art prize night in 2009 and it's a very special picture to me, because I can't really recall, how this hovering-effect actually worked. I remember it was a red leather bench without rest next to the entrance. I saw the picture straight away and had to hurry, because it seemed to be the only moment without people passing through. I think there was a glass wall dividing that part of the room from the rest and the "Hovering Red" was the reflection. At least, this is the conclusion I came upon in retrospective. I like this kind of ghostly attitude in it.
2 hours later - after never ending boring speeches and the prize-giving-ceremony, that same bench was packed with empty plates and glasses like after a real wild party, which actually hadn't taken place.

Note if you're considering to buy "Hovering Red": Be aware that the photo is a little grainy because of the darkness and the rush I was in. I love this, because it somehow emphasizes the spooky character of the picture.

"Hovering Red" is out of a series called "Kunstraum" (more or less "art venue" / Kunst=art raum=room), which evolved by coincidence. In 2009 and early 2010 I visited quite a few art venues, afterwards realizing that I almost always had "stolen" a new piece of art from this places with my camera. It wasn't about the art being showcased, it was about the unnoticed beauty, which nobody else would seemingly be aware of: the hidden emergency exit closed by a red cord, a staircase, a shadow from a window, a curtain ... .
The series is about the blindness of people: Someone attending an exhibition of art, obviously liking beauty, but not being capable of seeing it "in the open wild". On the one hand I find this quite bewildering, but then again I'm very thankful for that fact.
Because if everybody woud be able to realize all the beauty, that surrounds us ... what would we artists be needed for?

"Hovering Red" was part of my 2010 exhibition "Kunstraum" in the Berlin gallery "Kunstschwimmer".
