Artist's description:

Gicleè FineArtPrint on Hahnemuehle.

Directory / Werkverzeichnis Nr. 78

Edition 11

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.

The frame in the second interior-context-picture is just an example and not part of the sale.

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.

"Paint it black" was photographed in the town of Calafate in the very south of Patagonia / Argentina during a 3 month photo-trip throughout this beautiful country in 2008.
It immediately drew my attention with its surrealistic appearance in the glittering, southern midday sun. The gate and the door having almost the same structure, both painted red and by catching it just in the right angle, giving it the look of being one piece, but at the same time looking like a red liquid flowing straight out of a painting by SalvadorDali.

"Paint it black" was part of my 2015 exhibition "6 for the passersby" in an aisle of the german ministry of finance in Berlin, which was - due to the heavy secureness - a very solitary event, mostly only noticed by the people working there. But hey: I had very well protected artworks. Strange: Nobody asked me for selling it "under the hand" - without the taxes you know ... How come?
