STARTING THROUGH…

0 Posted by - December 15, 2009 - Blog

Having moved to another place, out of the flatshare and in , just with Paul-made me paint even more.

In that period i produced pieces like THE JUNGLE IN MY HEAD, and CLOSENESS OF LIFE AND NATURE. in which i very much enjoyed exploring the influence of Frida Kahlo, as well as Henry Russeau, with all their excessive use of plants and leafs.

some of the stuff that inspires me…

closeness of life and nature

Another of those was LOVERS EMBRACE

Since i spend a lot of time painting, i was also pondering about a lot, as i always do..

In moments like them i came up with  MY ROOTS AND WINGS, which shows a lot about my needs and wants at the time…and also about the divide within me, between my hometown Berlin and my new home London!

I also created quite a few portraits of people that i know, most of which i am quite close to.

There was SOPHIE AND HER MUM (btw the only portrait i did of her she actually ever liked ;) )

Sticking to the subject, there was another wedding portrait i did and that belongs these days to Sarah and Lee Martin-who are very good friends of Paul

And last but not least, there was the portrait of Thomas, which i only recently finished, three years on that is…!

I just didn’t know how the background will look and all of a sudden i knew…

can money actually buy happiness …?
