Painting

“What if…?”

A wall full of drawings, of text fragments, hints and symbols. Paintings made with markers, with thick acrylic paint or digital tools. Layers upon layers.


Featuring the HALIEN, it will speak about the unknown a pandemic may cause, the change of the human genome by perhaps the vaccine or the virus itself. But although everything human looks different now, it also stays somehow the same. The strangeness amidst the normality.

Blood Red Path / What if

Gazing upwards, seeing nothing, feeling everything, walking the Blood Red Path. Your destination is to be the fool. Being free to wonder and admire. Beginners mind is a too soft description. No, you are vast and empty, free to suck up every tiny bit of loveliness the world is giving you. Touching the leaves, listening to the sky, licking the sun, and rolling in gravel. Gazing upwards with an open mouth/mind/heart, gazing upwards into the world.
You don’t need an initiation; you are the door of miracles; impressions enter you and leave as mysteries. You are wide open walking the Blood Red Path.

I am looking back at the past: Why didn’t you think, dear humans? Everything would have been so easy; differences would have vanished. Really, there is no need to confine thoughts. Love has an endless supply if you only start to think. In the darkest forest there is light, streets are not deserted, no they are empty to give you space and freedom to evolve. Why did you never stop to throw around your goods? Everything goes to waste only thoughts will last.

 

Sempiternity / What if

Digital drawing

There are trees above the mountains, growing endlessly into the sky. The deep forest is a barrier between us and them. Separating the possible from the drear finality some call reality – not me, not you. But the forest is not without perils: Mist is floating over the rocks and through the trees, saturated with a gnawing hunger. If a tendril catches you it will drain you of all ambition and direction. You must run, you must close your eyes, you must desire… then you will cross the border into the land of sempiternity.

The mountain king

Hidden in the depths of rock and earth.

Crowned with flowers which fell from the sky.

Streams pouring out of his hands.

Illuminated by love and fire, by sun and moon.

He is waiting – the mountain king.

 

In my mind there is a wild amalgam of music and folk tales, of myth and modern fantasy all situated in the mountains. Inside my head the theme of Peer Gynt is ringing and with my inner eye I can see rugged mountains tower over dark forests. I can feel ice-cold water drops on my skin and taste mouldy air in my lungs. Images and feelings fuelled by myths of Wayland the smith, of Tolkien’s dwarfs, of the Greek god Hephaistos or modern classics like Ronia the Robber’s daughter. But the one tale which never left my heart and mind is the story of Laurin the Dwarven King of the Rosengarten, which I learned from my father while driving through Italy.

The Rosengarten is the name of a mountain massif in the Dolomites in northern Italy. The impressive mountains have a soft pink hue and they are famous for glowing during sunsets (Alpenglühen). The saga of King Laurin is a folkloristic attempt to explain the phenomena of Alpenglow.

Equinia is an ongoing series of paintings which showcases landscapes and beings built in screaming colours: ordinary and outlandish at the same time. The pastose paint sucks the observers into secret worlds which only enfold after deeper contemplation.
