"Tickled Pink" are two small abstract pieces as a diptych. The colours are bright, added liquid and pastose. Minimalistic style but opulent colours applied with brushes and palette knife. Mixed media with charcoal and spray paint.
Acrylic on Paper on wood. Both pieces are signed and dated on the back. The sides are white with texture from colour. Sealed with a high glossy varnish (if there are reflections on the photographs, they are coming from the high gloss). You only need two nails to hang them flat on the wall.
2 pieces, each 20 x 15 x 5,5 cm | 7.9 x 6 x 2.2 in.
Together (without space in between) 20 x 30 cm | 7.9 x 6 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.
