After 24 February 2022, I could no longer hold on to my series Cellar Door and Concierto de Aranjuez, which follow on from Miles Davis and which I had submitted to the national art show Flux4Art.
A retreat into the apolitical, into an idealistic professional image committed solely to the pure and formal beauty of art would contradict my understanding of the possibilities of the visual arts in an open and free society. I began with the Flood of Images - Ukraine Series.
About the working process: The corrugated cardboard is taped and the tape is then cut with a cutter. The handcrafted artworks are characterised by a special style inspired by Street Art and Ready Made. Slight bleeds on the top layer and undercuts on the folded and creased parts of the cardboard are not subsequently laminated in the spirit of this charm.
