"She looks like a bush full of butterflies (Rosebush)" is a extra large abstract in the style of abstract expressionism. Shades of green (lime, olive, dark green and mixes of them) as main colours with accents in grey, pink and cream tell about nature. And that is what it was inspired by: During the last hot days with a high humidity in my studio the best place to be was the shady courtyard. There everything was in full bloom and green the dominating colour...!
"She looks like a bush full of butterflies (Rosebush)" has visible brushstrokes and slightly textures from applying the colours.
The canvas is stretched by myself of high quality stretcher bars and canvas. The sides are painted in white with traces of the development of the painting. Ready to hang - professional hooks are already mounted, so you just need two nails to hang "She looks like a bush full of butterflies" on your wall - where it will be a real eye-catcher!
180 x 140 x 3 cm.
To strengthen character of the painting and its colours, it is sealed with a matte varnish.
Signed on the front and signed and dated on the back.

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.
