After I hadn’t painted for a long time due to my job, I started to sniff it again about a year ago.
In order to regain my sensitivity as quickly as possible, I collected withered leaves and then blossoms and flowers in spring. The first thing I did with it were bookmarks.
Why bookmarks? Because in my opinion they are a genre neglected by art. On the other hand, since I have dealt intensively with the art of Chinese seal cutting for many years, I am enthusiastic about the idea of dealing with a lot of content in a small format.
If the first works were more decorative or rather small calligraphies, they gradually became more constructivist, more minimalist.
This step was also important, as I had left out more and more in my last work, so that often only pictures made up of a few lines remained – although I also like these works very much myself.
