“The King” (together with the matching painting "The Queen") was made with a wink – it was inspired by an upcoming travel to London. The combination of the pure linen with bright, vibrant colours and charcoal marks makes “The King” an unusual and edgy artwork. Although being an abstract, the charcoal marks symbolize crown and merlon.
In contrary to "The Queen’s" crown, the crown is more rough and wide – male.
Painted on self-stretched linen with a transparent priming. Signed on the front and signed and dated on the back.
Varnished with a matt varnish (Lascaux with UV protection). A professional hanger is already mounted, so "The King" is ready to hang.
50 x 40 x 5 cm | 19.7 x 15.7 x 2 in
One of the in-situ pics shows "The King" together with "The Queen" - this is just an example, because both paintings are painted together and match perfectly. Please notice, that this offer is only for "The King".

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.
