"transit" is an ongoing series that I have been working on since the scholarship from the Cultural Foundation of the Free State of Thuringia in 2018 and in which I am dealing with the changed perception of being on the move at high speed. Photos taken from the train, bus or car window serve as a starting point for the oil paintings.
Oil and Stitching on Canvas
Natural disasters are existential events that humans have little to counter and that remind us of our own fragile existence. In certain regions, people live permanently with the knowledge that a tremor can occur at any time. The series wave (oil on canvas with sewn structure) shows landscapes that have been affected by seismic activity, as well as sometimes accompanied by a volcanic eruption. The sewn structure is based on seismographic records of earthquakes that have occurred in the same region as the depicted landscape.
