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.
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 )
My friend STEFF
Paul and i…
My family portrait….
And one of the favorites of my recent exhibition…MARYLIN MANSCHEWSKI a little homage to a very sweet girl
Then there is MY GRANDPARENTS, which was a gift from me to them on their golden wedding anniversary.
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…
