Work Process


Work Process

My previous and current works are a research for possibilities of visualizing my perception. It’s always about reconstructing memories and impressions. 

 

Natural textures, shapes and patterns were what first grabbed my attention. I started collecting them through photography and sketchbooks. This documentation developed into a diary of images. I started experimenting with it in different ways. Instead of using studies as a primary reference for my final works, I began to draw from memory. This can be seen in my last etching series in which I dealt with my encounter with Goya’s prints in Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando. 

 

During this research, I realized that what I see consists of fragments. These fragments emerge from observation and visual studies. Painting, drawing and printing techniques turned out to be a appropriate form of expressing them. Overall, I am always concerned with the question about how these media can intersect. Furthermore, I developed own techniques to combine them or to oppose them visually. In the course of the working process a new theme has also emerged: Currently, I deal with my own development as an identical twin. With my current works I want to visualize this special relationship and the special behavioural and existential perceptions that have arisen from it - in an abstract way. The subject matter should not only be taken up in the pictures themselves, but also in the exhibition concept and presentation.
