Curriculum Vitae

 

 

A perceptible transience and fading memories are the constant companions in my work. The structures and patterns on the surface are reminiscent of old wallpaper and textile adornments such as walls or cushions. The partial fading color and the barely recognizable pattern convey a feeling of dissolution.

 

As a result of the previous work, which was inspired by old family photos, the focus of the new pieces lies on the play with the surface and the clear reduced form. The copper as carrier material provides a color surprise in the intuitive interaction of the materials and the technical process.

 

The assembled bodies are inflated by the generation of a vacuum and the metal is thus brought to its limit of capacity. By later enamelling and the partial removal of the paint, the surface is worked in continuous change until the moment of satisfaction is reached.
