Abstract Painting "Interstellar Midnight (Manhattan Midnight)" - a large painting with a strong, powerful expression in bright colours.
Blue, pink, orange, green, silver and white are applied in many layers, from thick to liquid. There are also collage materials like ashes and board, what gives the painting texture.
The work is part of my "Interstellar" Series - due to the colours, that reminds on the neon lights of times square at night, it's subtitle is "Manhatten Mignight".
Mixed media (Acrylics, Spray Paint, Pencil, Charcoal). Signed on the front and signed and dated on the back. The sides are painted in white.
The Canvas was stretched on wooden frames by myself, two solid hangers are mounted, so the painting is ready to hang, you only need two nails. Further framing is not required.
120 x 100 x 3 cm | 47,2 x 39,4 x 1.2 in

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.
