Artist's description:

Painting in black & white - elegant and stylish! Mixed media and collage. Surface with light structure (look at the details). Signed on the front.

It was inspired (I painted it a few days later) by a descend from the "Predigtstuhl" in south germany near the alps, we climbed down about 1100 metres. It was unbelievable struggling but on the other hand a great experience to get it done by your own strength. This is symbolized in this painting.

The sides are not painted but with the visible traces of the development of the paiting.

The canvas is stretched on a wooden frame with a solid hanger and is ready to hang. Framing is not required.

The chastness of the colours stands in a strong contrast to the opulent materiality and haptic of the work.

70 x 70 x 4 cm | 27,6 x 27,6 x 1,8 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.

Das Bild wurde inspiriert von einem Abstieg vom "Predigstuhl", einem Berg in Bad Reichenhall nahe der Alpen. Ich habe es einige Tage, nachdem wir etwa 1100 Höhenmeter abgestiegen sind, gemalt. Der Abstieg war unglaublich anstrengend, aber gleichzeitig eine großartige Erfahrung, es aus eigener Kraft zu schaffen, was das Bild symbolisiert.

Farbe und Material (Asche, Papiere, Pappe) sind in vielen Schichten aufgetragen, kombiniert mit zeichnerischen Elementen (Kohle, Ölpastell).

Die Schlichtheit in der Farbe steht in starkem Kontrast zur opulenten Materialität und Haptik des Werkes.

Professionelle Zackenaufhänger sind bereits montiert, so dass Sie das Bild sofort aufhängen können. Die Leinwandseiten sind nicht bemalt, sondern zeugen mit entsprechenden (Farb-)Spuren stilvoll vom Entstehungsprozess des Werkes.
