  2. At GlogauAir, Berlin

    The tin foil was taped to the wall with transparent tape at the spot with the least daylight in the room, which it reflects. The way the foil is taped to the wall clearly emphasizes its materiality. The drawing is a hand made copy of a photo representing a hole in the forest.  The black graphite absorbs the light . 2019.

  3. Studio

    The photo shows  a  studio setting where a landscape drawing is  both integrated/ and set apart in its environment. The paper wall functions as an intermediate between the place  of the studio over here and the nature in the image over there.

  5. ‘Untitled’ (The Centre Cannot Hold). Dimensions between : H150cm.  and H89cm. Graphite on paper. 2019/20

    Photographic images translated into drawing. Different layers and stages of density are spread over several sheets of paper  and several formations. The overlap is essential, making it it clear its one constructed image. The underlying might be invisible its not unreachable.

  12. 'Untitled' (Mögligkeitsraum). 2018

    Movement and stillness. Drawing in three layers from a projected photograph taken during a walk in northern Europe.The upper part shows the first layer where the image was replaced every 5 cm(indicated by black marks; see detail). As a result from these replacements most significant and recognizable elements of the landscape are wiped out. All the information of the forest is there but fragmented in a repetitious pattern like field.The lower part of the drawing has two extra layers, drawn bottom up, where the image wasn’t replaced anymore.The drawing is drawn at both sides which on the one hand emphasizes it’s immateriality, the paper is in between the drawing, on the other hand this causes the paper to bulb which makes the paper material more visible.

  16. 'Untitled' (Circles)  150 x 242cm 2018.

    Based on the projection of a landscape. This drawing (diptych) was made over a period of almost a year. It was started in my studio and finished in the living room, drawn up to five layers. First the sheet of paper was enlarged at the bottom, then this part was removed again. The remaining part was cut in two and rearranged.  For me this drawing represents a way of non linear working; there’s no clear destination, it travels with me, expanding and contracting, absorbing time and graphite. I guess it was finished when it returned after an exhibition. 

    For the documentation of this work I used a spotlight, clearly showing the reflection in the graphite leaving the other parts in the half-light of the room.

  21. 'Untitled' (Position). Graphite on paper. 150 x 167cm. 2017.

    this is a drawing derived from a forest scene with one diagonal (tree) as a significant element. By replacing the projection twice during the process of drawing the diagonal tree merges with the background.

    Most drawings are started at the upper left corner to end at the lower right one, like a text is written. This drawing however was made randomly, every spot on the surface being a possible point of continuation.

  22. 'Untitled' (From Drawing #5) photographic image. Dimensions variable, 4x5, 2017

    Drawing over projection/ Projection over drawing. Over the projection the drawing is added on a sheet of paper. when the photo is taken the projection is visible as a layer over the drawing. Both the drawing and the final picture follow standart sizes of photographic and drawing paper.

  24. Detail

    'Untitled'

    Creation is also about destruction.

    After two layers the whole drawing was erased, then three new layers. The middle part is completely black and the paper pushed to its limits. Each new layer destroys somehow the layer before. At the edges of the drawing there’s a lot of information about previous stages.

    I like the ambiguousness of the middle part which is at the same time suggesting depth as a black hole and blocking this depth by reflecting the light, thus showing the drawing as an ordinary object.

  34. 'Untitled' (Carry)  [private collection]

    Technically consisting of two layers, but not on top of each other. As might be visible at the detailed image, all white spots were marked with small circles or rectangles. The rest of the drawing is made around it. It’s like the two systems keep each other in place, like bubbles in foam.

  35. 'Untitled' (Done with light #2) Graphite on paper. 151 x 252cm. [private collection]

    Three photos, three moments, merged together making a new image. In the middle part the merging process went ‘wrong’, it was partly erased and two new layers were added.
