TEARS FROM DIFFERENT SKIES FILL THE OCEAN

acrylic and oil on canvas
Color-reduced, monochrome painting in Prussian and Phtalo blue, inspired by the picturesque poetry of traditional Japanese and Chinese ink drawings. About the thematic background of the painting:
Empires like us
Golden and great
Rise and fall
And all our tears
From different skies
Are silent witnesses
As they fill the ocean.

This artwork is for sale as a solitaire and is also the middle part of the triptych THE SLEEPLESS LONGING FOR THE DISTANT. It is a true LARGE-SIZED PAINTING for a large-scale, aesthetic, finely nuanced impression on your wall. It is part of my authentic, profound message as an artist. Please read the very extensive, current interview about my art and painting philosophy on my English website (also available as PDF-file for download).
I use exclusively oil and acrylic paints, canvas and wooden frames in a professional museum quality. The painting bears my signature on the front and is signed, entitled and dated on the backside. Deliberately the XL-sides (about 4,5 cm / 1,77 in wide) are not part of the painting and show the pure white canvas with a few sprinkles of color, which emphasizes the intuity of the painterly process of creation. Optional: If desired by the collector, these sides can also be painted black after purchase and before delivery. The painting is unframed and ready to hang (on the backside: high-quality iron plates with metal inserts and nylon rope for gallery use), and it doesn’t need a frame or any additional surface treatment. The artwork will be safely shipped in a custom wooden crate and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and a cover letter.
Please note: In context pictures are not necessarily to scale and are for illustrative purposes only. If you have any questions about this painting or any other piece, feel free to contact me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
Thanks so much for taking an interest in my work.
